Online marketplace eBay has announced the appointment of Gareth Jones as its UK Senior Marketing Director.
Jones previously held the position of Director of Marketing Strategy, Planning and Performance at comparison website Compare the Market.
eBay has said that Jones’s new role is crucial to inspire and engage customers in the lead up to the very important Christmas trading period.
Jones has over 20 years’ experience in similar roles at high-profile brands including Carphone Warehouse, Capital One and Royal Mail.
Tanya Lawler, Vice President of eBay in the UK, said: “Gareth is a best in class marketer with a proven track record of developing strategies which flow across customer touch points and key platforms. Gareth will play the lead in creating and delivering seasonally relevant, targeted marketing campaigns to the 18 million Brits who visit eBay.co.uk each month.”
The new appointment follows the hiring of Digital Advertising Agency Executive, Suzy Deering as Chief Marketing Officer earlier this week.
