Things are moving and shaking over at Skype. It seems that since their acquisition by eBay, there will be a shuffling of management between various units. We're not sure exactly why this is happening but perhaps putting execs in different units will stimulate synergy. Here's the rundown of who's going where to do what:
“Skype co-founder Niklas Zennstrom has handed over his CEO title to become non-executive chairman of the board of directors of this eBay unit, whose impact on its parent company remains an open question.
Michael van Swaaij, eBay's Chief Strategy Officer, is stepping in as interim CEO until a permanent replacement is hired, eBay announced Monday.
Also out is Henry Gomez, who has been with eBay since 2000 and joined Skype about two years ago. After serving as general manager of Skype North America and later Skype Chief Marketing Officer, he was named its president in December 2006. Gomez will return to the eBay fold as a senior vice president for corporate affairs.”
