Miriam Lahage, eBay’s general manager for fashion, apparently left eBay at the end of February in order to take on a new role in June. The nature of her new role is not known.
She joined eBay in September 2010 having previously worked for numerous fashion brands including Net-a-Porter, Koodos.com and TJX Companies, who own TK Maxx.
eBay will not be hiring a direct replacement for Lahage. Her current duties will be delegated to other staff.
eBay have released a suitably bland and uninformative statement on the matter: “After helping to build a strong voice and presence for our eBay Fashion business in North America and Europe, Miriam Lahage has decided to focus her talent and energy on more entrepreneurial pursuits outside of eBay. With her fashion and retail expertise, Miriam has helped to lead the evolution of eBay’s fashion strategy and our business development activities with fashion brands and retail partners. We thank Miriam for her partnership and leadership, and wish her well in her next career move.”
