eBay Oz VP Leaves After 8 Years

Simon Smith, eBay Australia Vice President, is leaving the company after eight years. I’m pretty surprised that it took him this long after he fell out of favour with eBay Australia users, forcing them to use PayPal as the ONLY payment option for all eBay transactions and likening them to druggies.

As Vice President, Simon Smith helped to build the nine year old company into a leading online retailer in the country with five million unique visitors. According to a survey conducted by AC Nielsen, more than 17,500 Australians use eBay as their primary or online source of income.

Simon Smith is replaced by Deborah Sharkey who has been with eBay Australia for five years. She will assume the post of Managing Director, though, for eBay Australia and New Zealand Pty Ltd.

In view of the negativities that have been plaguing eBay throughout 2008, it looks like Deborah will have pretty challenging times ahead of her.
