Some excellent news for friends and former colleagues from eBay –
Jeff Jordan is the new CEO of OpenTable. I loved working with Jeff at eBay – he has a fabulous mix of product, business and people skills. Jeff was one of the most well-respected and approachable executives around. He was an endless-well of energy who made stuff happen!
OpenTable is very lucky to have him. Good luck in your new gig, Jeff!!
Also today, eBay confirmed that it acquired StumbleUpon. To my two former eBay colleagues who are there – the incredible UI god, George, and the excellent marketer, Dave, congratulations on being back in the fold!
I love StumbleUpon – the incredible traffic driving capabilities and the unique discovery engine. I can’t wait to see how StumbleUpon is integrated into Skype.
It is a wonderful thing when good things happen to good people!
