eBay's executive shakeup continues with VP Buyer Experience Bradford Shellhammer jumping ship to become Chief Product Officer at Etsy owned musical instrument marketplace Reverb.
Shellhammer announced he was leaving eBay in a surprise post on LinkedIn over the weekend which was then followed up on Tuesday with the big reveal of his new position.
I’m happy to share that I’m starting a new position as Chief Product Officer at Reverb!
Anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with music, and at one time music likely saved my life. I'm a huge fan of Reverb and I am inspired by David Mandelbrot and his inventive team. I'm excited for this next chapter, starting today.
Now I finally have a reason to buy a proper DJ setup and learn how to DJ!
