eBay has appointed Pete Thompson as Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer and Mazen Rawashdeh as Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. Thompson joins eBay from Amazon where he served as Vice President of Alexa Voice Service. Rawashdeh was most recently Head of Platform Engineering at eBay and is now being promoted to the most senior engineering position at the company.

The former Chief Technology Officer of eBay, Steve Fisher, stepped down from his position in May 2019 to focus on health issues in his family. Fisher had been with the company for almost 5 years where he drove eBay's overall product and technology vision and strategy. The new appointments splits Fisher's product and technology responsibilities in two separate organizations.

The company also announced the appointments of Scott Gaffney as VP of Search Engineering and Steve Metz as VP of Product Analytics.
