eBay have named Alan Marks as their new Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications. Reporting to President and CEO John Donahoe, Marks will be responsible for leading the communications strategies for all areas of the company, including business and consumer media relations, employee communications, executive positioning and issues and reputation management.
JD said “We’re delighted to have someone of Alan’s caliber join our talented executive team and lead our global communications efforts.”
Prior to joining eBay, Alan Marks was director of global corporate media relations for Nike Inc. He had previously held communications positions with Gap Inc., and Avon Products Inc. He began his working life as a journalist.
It’s interesting times for eBay’s corporate communications at the moment, as their new blog is due to launch later today. Alan Marks starts work on 28th April, which should be just in time to deal with coverage of another seller strike starting 1st May. We wish him luck.
