To our valued Sellers,
Today we announced some important regional leadership changes in our Marketplaces business and I want to take a moment to connect with all of you.
As you saw, Scott Cutler has been appointed as Senior Vice President of the Americas, replacing Hal Lawton who is leaving eBay to take on a senior leadership role at another company. Scott is a seasoned executive with considerable global business experience running marketplaces – and a great guy.
Before taking on this role, Scott oversaw StubHub, one of the world’s largest ticket marketplaces where he was deeply immersed in both providing a fantastic experience for consumers and increasing velocity for sellers. He oversaw the reinvention of the StubHub brand globally, expanded the company’s global presence from four to over 48 countries, completed two acquisitions, and announced significant strategic partnerships in sports and music.
Before that, he spent 9 years running the NY Stock Exchange, one of the world’s largest and oldest marketplaces.
To reaffirm our messages at eBay Open, all of us at eBay are committed to the success of our sellers. You will be hearing more from Scott soon, so pleased stay tuned, and feel free to reach out with any questions in the meantime. I also want to thank Hal for his important contributions and wish him great success going forward.
Thanks for being part of the eBay Community.
