eBay Motors Gets New Head of Product and Technology

Paul Stathacopoulos announced on LinkedIn he is now Head of Product and Technology at eBay Motors. It appears from his profile he had been serving as a consultant for eBay and Freetouch for the past year.

According to Stathacopoulos’s post, he started at eBay Motors this week.

The Journey Begins!
Today I am starting a new chapter as Head of Product and Technology for eBay Motors. I could not be more excited to be joining the eBay team. For those that know me well, cars have been a passion of mine since childhood. I even once parted out most of a ’72 Jensen Healey on eBay…just to make room for a different car in my garage. Today I have the unique opportunity to combine this lifelong passion (obsession) with my career. I am excited to meet the talented team and I see so much opportunity and potential in this very important eBay business. With the offices closed due to the pandemic, I commemorated the occasion with a drive-by and a quick pic.

From 2016 – 2019, Stathacopoulos was an executive at Tivo, and earlier in his career he had been at Sega. He holds 26 patents covering a variety of fields of use including Media Search & Discovery, Advertising, Data Science & Human Machine Brain Interfaces.

  1. To do what exactly?

    Is this another do nothing job (like Griff)?

    Hopefully he got the 18K (that its worth) for the car he (stupidly) parted out – considering there were only 3356 ever made (but I doubt it).

    eBay steals money from sellers because USPS cant deliver ontime and hires another yoyo …. color me NOT impressed.

  2. I’ll be the one to go against the grain here and say I’m cautiously optimistic about this one. If nothing else, just seeing eBay hire someone with a tech/product background instead of another lawyer or finance guy is good news in my book, or at least worth giving the guy a fair shot.
