As announced in Germany, Philipp Justus is coming from eBay Europe to a management position at eBay in San Jose (U.S.). Some blogs had speculated that Justus would be replacing eBay North America President Bill Cobb, but Bill can sleep soundly tonight knowing his job is safe. According to eBay spokesperson Hani Durzy, Justus will be coming to a management role in the U.S. and may actually be reporting to Cobb.  

According to the eBay Germany website (assuming Google's language tool is up to the task of translating accurately), Justus is Senior Vice President and General Manager of eBay Europe. He had headed eBay Germany for four years and, under his guidance, it became the largest international eBay marketplace outside of the U.S. 

eBay's Durzy emphasized that Bill Cobb and John Donahoe aren't going anywere.

They may be reconfiguring the Executive suite. In my view this is not a postive development for Bill Cobb long term.
