Henry Gomez is to replace Alex Kazim as President of Skype. Just over a year ago Gomez took on his role as general manager of Skype North America to provide a focus for enhancing Skype’s performance and growth in North America. From there he has progressed to CMO & Director of Operations for Skype and now gets the top job.
First Justus, then Linton now Gomez and Kazim… there are still some key management appointments to come in key areas of eBay‘s business before everyone is in their allotted slot.
