eBay's Chief Technology Officer steps down
eBay announced in a filing with the SEC that Steve Fisher, Senior Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, has stepped down to focus on health issues that his family is facing. Fisher has been with the company for almost 5 years where he drove eBay's overall product and technology vision and strategy, leading the global team responsible for the end-to-end eBay product experience and technology platform.
Devin Wenig, eBay's CEO, said of the departure: “Steve Fisher, eBay’s highly respected CTO, is stepping down to focus on health issues that his family is facing. His passion for eBay, our customers and our purpose has been exemplary. All of us at eBay are incredibly grateful for his leadership, friendship and commitment. We support him 100% as he turns his attention full time to his family.”
In June 2018, Fisher had assumed the role of Senior Vice President of Payments, but he resumed his role as Chief Technology Officer 5 months later. He previously served as Executive Vice President of Technology at Salesforce.
