A Sellers View of eBay's CEO Devin Wenig

What makes a good CEO a great CEO ? When they really understand what is going on with the company that they have been chosen to run. I think many times the job itself is buried in so much corporate nonsense that this important leader becomes so out of touch with how the companies policies are affecting the health of the company that it begins to fail slowly over time.

Kudos to Mr Devin Wenig for stepping outside the cookie cutter CEO mentality and actually taking a real interest in how to make ebay a better company not only for buyers but for sellers as well. For without a healthy supply of a wide variety of sellers there would not be nearly as many buyers.

When we first decided to run an ebay business for a living the company policies were so stringent and foreboding that we were actually scared of the company and were constantly trying to figure fallback plans in case we just woke up one day and our ebay business was closed down for some minor infraction of the rules.

We are so pleased with the new CEO that those thoughts are no longer part of our business strategy and now we can just focus on building a successful ebay business. We feel like we are part of something really great again and no longer have that it's them against us feeling. Feels more like a partnership than ever before.

I was just thinking about this today and how much me and my partners feeling toward ebay have completely turned around since Devin Wenig took over. Feels like we can all breath again, lol. Running an ebay store is hard enough without being afraid of having the rug pulled out from under you for things you can't control.

At least now with the new policies in effect our future with ebay is in our hands and I have to say that feels pretty damn good.

Have a good one !


  1. Hi Tony! I could not agree more. My feeling is this guy gets it. As a 14+ year seller it is a long overdue and a more than welcome change. I love Ebay and love what I do. It's like a breath of fresh air!
    Sounds like you guys are doing great! Congrats!
