No primary category set

eBay have today named new CEOs for Skype and Shopping.com. Josh Silverman, the current CEO of Shopping.com, moves to Skype to take over from Michael van Swaaij, who was appointed interim CEO in October 2007. Josh joined eBay in 2003 and has held a variety of management positions, including General Manager for Marktplaats.nl. He was also responsible for helping to build eBay’s European classified ads businesses. Josh has started blogging already, saying “I’m serious about wanting to build the greatest products — and the greatest company — on Earth. That doing so means listening well, being willing to think different and take risks.”

Josh is succeeded at Shopping.com by Andre Haddad, who has been with eBay since 2001, working most recently as Senior Vice President of Product. Andre said he was “thrilled to be joining such an exciting company”.

eBay President John Donohoe said “It’s a testament to our deep talent pool that we can fill these positions internally,” said Donahoe. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have Josh and Andre taking on such critical leadership roles.” We wish them both success.
