In recent months, there’s been a lot of speculation about Rob Chesnut, eBay’s Senior Vice President of Global Trust & Safety, and his future within the company. Rob took a sabbatical just after eBay Live, which prompted some bloggers and eBay community board users to speculate that he wasn’t coming back. Today, we can tell you that he *is* back – but he’s got a new job. Rob will now be known as Senior Vice President, Deputy General Counsel, a position which should draw on his pre-eBay legal experience. Trust and Safety is to be left in the hands of Matt Halprin, known to listeners of eBay Radio as the “resident Trust and Safety guy“.
We wish both Rob and Matt luck in their new positions.
