“The tech world continued its game of musical chairs on Thursday, with eBay hiring RJ Pittman to join its Marketplaces business as chief product officer and senior vice president,” Lyneka Little reports for Entrepreneur.
“Pittman lands at eBay after working at Apple, where he was responsible for the e-commerce platform for online stores as well as design, product management and commerce innovation,” Little reports. “In his new position, he will be responsible for creating the end-to-end product experiences for eBay’s 124 million active users and 25 million sellers.”
Little reports, “The move also comes after a huge coup for Apple earlier this week with the announcement that it has hired Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts to lead its retail division. Ahrendts, who is slated to join Apple in the spring of 2014, will lead the strategic direction, expansion and option of retail and online stores for the popular consumer electronics company.”
