Ebay appoints new MD for ANZ

Tim-MacKinnon-CEO-EBayEbay has appointed Tim Mackinnon as its new managing director across Australia & New Zealand, following the appointment of Jooman Park to senior vice president (SVP) APAC last month.

The e-commerce multinational said Mackinnon had a “fantastic track record” during his six and a half year tenure leading selling and marketing teams.

“Tim is well-known to the Australian Ebay seller community and is well-respected by them for his deep e-commerce insight and partnership,” the company said in a statement.

Mackinnon was most recently chief marketing officer and senior director, verticals and retailer growth at Ebay, having previously served as an advisor to the Australian Government on innovation and IT industry, and as a senior associate in an Australian corporate law firm.

In June, Ebay said its sales have grown at 28 per cent in the last five years, predicting that a record $25 million to be spent on more than 12.5 million items over the month this year.

“The Australian e-commerce industry is entering a new, exciting period for businesses and consumers alike,” said Mackinnon. “Ebay has been here since the earliest days helping to pioneer the industry, supporting Australian businesses to seize opportunities and providing consumers with great deals.

“It is a great responsibility to continue to grow the 40,000 Australian businesses on the Ebay platform, grow the careers of our employees and help three in five Australian consumers to save money.”
