It’s the first week of the New Year and eBay have already announced a new hire in a senior UK postition. Rhian Bartlett joins eBay from Sainsbury’s and has been appointed eBay’s new Senior Director of Soft Goods.

Rhian was Business Unit Director for Sainsbury’s Grocery Non Food Division. She previously held roles within other major retailers, including Safeway, Superdrug and Homebase. Her new role at eBay will be to develop eBay’s strategy and drive growth in key non-durable categories including clothing and home & garden.

Rhian’s deep expertise across both physical and digital retail, along with experience in key categories, makes her an exciting senior addition to the eBay team.”

Senior Director of Soft Goods? Presumably that means teddy bears! More meaningless gobbledygook and another fat salary paid from our fees on Greedbay Blurring the lines between online and offline selling? Translation: have another little drinkie and you won't know what you are buying or from whom!
