Any Advice for Returning eBay Executive?
By: Ina Steiner
Former head of Seller Experience Jordan Sweetnam is returning to eBay as Senior Vice President and General Manager, Americas Market, which encompasses the US, Canada, and Latin America.
Sweetnam spent 12 years at eBay before leaving in 2016 to take a job at Walmart Ecommerce, which underwent a shakeup last month.
He will report to Jay Lee, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Markets. eBay's announcement didn't address how Sweetnam's role differs from that of Jay Hanson, who is Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of eBay Americas.
Lee said in the announcement, "Jordan's incredible experience and energy will be a huge asset in this critical leadership role and we are thrilled to welcome him back to eBay to lead our Americas business. He has long-standing relationships with many of eBay's seller community, is an avid customer, and will bring an invaluable perspective to the Markets leadership team."
Sweetnam will start work in San Jose on July 15.
Do you think Sweetnam will recognize eBay after his 3-year absence? Do you have any advice for the returning executive?
