eBay Spokesperson Ryan Moore Departs for Facebook

eBay’s Director of Communications Ryan Moore left the company in December after being its spokesperson for over 7 years. He is now leading financial communications at Facebook.

Moore’s exit comes 3 months after the departure of his boss Steve Wymer – the same month that CEO Devin Wenig abruptly exited the company. Wymer had been at eBay for only 9 months, serving as Senior Vice President, Chief Communications Officer, and Chair of the eBay Foundation.

Among Moore’s responsibilities at eBay was overseeing its global corporate reputation efforts, which included “elevating the eBay brand with key audiences and protecting the company’s reputation through proactive issues management, rapid response to trending issues and aggressive monitoring of the media landscape.”

Many EcommerceBytes readers know him as the voice of the company. He led communication efforts for Business, Selling, Global Growth, Advertising, Merchant Development, Trust, Risk, Security, Government Relations, Customer Experience, and Legal – while supporting Technology, Product and Consumer communication initiatives, according to his LinkedIn profile.

  1. Ebay AU’s CMO Julie Nestor also left to join Hilton a month ago, and David Doctorow, eBay’s head of global consumer growth is leaving to assume the CEO role at News Corp’s Move.com effective Feb 3rd. Move.com is the Rupert Murdoch real estate subsidiary that operates Realtor.com (nice exit for Doctorow to be sure).

    Meanwhile we wonder how the CEO search is going for eBay…

    Tic-toc, tic-toc…

    In other words, he had the most impossible job at Ebay since management has been doing nothing but tarnishing their reputation for years. Funny how Ebay keeps waiting longer and longer to announce when a key executive leaves the company. Guess they are afraid of the negative effects it will have on the price of the company stock before they have a chance to dump more of it at inflated prices.
