Loss of A$6mil, says on track to breaking even Aims to be clear No 1 player in Thailand within 12mths
iCar Asia, which runs a network of automotive portals across the Asean region, has announced the appointment of Joe Dische as chief financial officer (CFO), effective June 9.
iCar Asia Ltd has announced an additional investment of A$7.2 million (US$6.5 million) from ASX-listed carsales.com Ltd, which it would invest into product development and marketing activities of its market leading brand Carlist.my.
In 2007, there was this one-man show, a blog called PaulTan.org, that was kicking the large motoring portals' collective butt in terms of buzz and readership.

Asohan has an in-depth discussion with the man Paul Tan himself to find out what makes him, and his site, tick.
