After 5-plus years, Greg Isaacs, Director of eBay's developers program, is leaving the company. (link)

Greg was named one of Business 2.0's "50 People Who Matter" in June: "You won't find his name on eBay's senior management roster, but Isaacs is critical to the growth prospects of the $4.6 billion company, which is increasingly threatened by competition from the likes of Amazon, Craigslist, Google, Swaptree, and countless other online discounters and marketplaces."

According to our sources, he's moving down to L.A. to join a startup. Greg says in his post on the Developers Program blog that Adam Trachtenberg (head of Evangelism, Community & Product) and Rob Cross (Market Development and Certified Provider Program) will take over the program.
