This ecosystem cements Mirakl’s place at the center of the marketplace economy and reflects its unique understanding of what it takes for companies to accelerate their success in today's commerce landscape. De Mourgues joins Mirakl following nearly a decade of leadership at Amazon, most recently serving as director of Amazon Marketplace in Latin America.
Marketplaces have grown twice as fast as eCommerce, and retailers, brands and third-party sellers alike have taken notice – 45% more sellers joined marketplaces in 2021 compared to the previous year. Mirakl Connect empowers marketplaces to quickly find, qualify and onboard vetted, relevant sellers to grow their marketplaces without limits. As executive vice president of Mirakl Connect and growth solutions, de Mourgues will oversee the Mirakl Connect ecosystem’s constantly growing network of sellers and partners.

By bringing together all the parties needed for a thriving marketplace economy, Mirakl Connect enables the organization to solidify its position powering the world’s leading online marketplaces.
“Sellers that align to a marketplace’s vision and values are critical to achieve scalable, sustained growth,” said Adrien Nussenbaum, co-founder and co-CEO, Mirakl. “Mirakl Connect is an essential resource for marketplaces to qualify trusted, pre-vetted sellers and partners that will help scale their business while protecting their brand. Jean-Gabriel’s experience leading the growth of Amazon Marketplace in Europe and Latin America will prove invaluable as we drive expansion of the marketplace model throughout the world.”
“The Mirakl Connect ecosystem has the potential to completely transform how retailers connect with new sellers and partners, at a moment when expanded product assortments are essential to combat supply chain pressures and rising inflation,” said de Mourgues. “I know firsthand the importance of streamlining how marketplace operators identify, source and onboard sellers and partners so they can more easily meet the needs and expectations of their customers. I look forward to working with the Mirakl Connect team to grow our global ecosystem and develop new product innovations that offer a seamless experience for operators, sellers and partners that want to expand their marketplace business.”
