New on eBay — a logo?!?

eBay logo

I’m now in my 10th month as Vice President of Technology and Science at eBay heading up the Managed Marketplaces team.  I am also General Manager of the quickly growing eBay Seattle office.

I get so many questions about eBay from my friends and colleagues around the world that I decided I would start blogging again — on this site:

Today was a fun day at eBay, because after 17 years, we announced a brand new logo.

The logo is cool — but even cooler is what it represents.  To me it represents a lot.  It symbolizes how eBay is a totally revitalized company that is on a roll.  The service is quickly attracting new customers, providing great service, innovating groundbreaking new features, and is frankly — just getting started.  As a techie — it also symbolizes how, as a company, eBay totally gets globally distributed development and  is growing an amazing team in the Seattle area where I celebrated today.  My team is spread across many locations including:  San Jose, Seattle, Austin, Salt Lake City, India and China.  Being able to run a team super efficiently across those regions requires a lot of smarts in management and support from the company.  I’m excited that all of the ingredients are present right here…

Feel free to comment, or send me questions on your mind that you’d like to hear me blog about.
