So what is Rob Chesnut former Senior Vice President of Trust & Safety doing? There have been conflicting stories since he went on sabbatical despite a brief appearance at eBay Live in June.

October the 18th saw a post on The Chatter which announced “A short while ago, however, Rob’s time off ended, and now he’s back to work – but he has a new desk!. Rob’s taking his expertise in the field of high-tech crime, internet fraud, and with his previous legal background, he’s transitioning to a new role as Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel.” That post disappeared again pretty quickly and is no longer available online.

This week it’s now apparent that Rob Chesnut will be leaving eBay and working in a consultation basis. “In a personal email, he let the Chatter team know that he’ll be helping our legal team on some special projects. As to a long-term position? Rob said that there are no definite plans. While it’s sad to think of an eBay marketplace without Rob, the Chatter team wishes him the best.”

Both the US and UK Trust and Safety Teams now have new leadership in place. Matt Halprin now leads the Global T&S team whilst in the UK the departure of Garreth Griffith to PayPal leaves Richard Ambrose overseeing the site
