Changes announced in China

No primary category set

eBay yesterday announced the appointment of Dr. Daniel Lee as General Manager for their China Development Center in Shanghai. Most recently having served as Chief Technology Officer for Yahoo, Dr. Lee will be overseeing the expansion of the CDC, developing various projects for the global eBay platform.

Does this indicate eBay’s longer term commitment to their Chinese operations in general? We think predictions that they’re about to pull out altogether are probably premature.

It does, however, leave us wondering about the other changes in eBay’s top ranks. German sources (in English) are still reporting Philipp Justus’ elevation to eBay HQ, but there seems to be a distinct lack of news coming out of San José at the moment.

  1. The absence of Meg’s name from the Justus announcement suggests she may be spending her days cleaning out her desk and divesting the China fiasco. Perceptive creative talent has been lacking in San Jose; this appointment could be a good sign that Pierre recognizes this shortcoming.
