April 22, 2018 | Yuval Matalon, current CEO of eBay Israel, has announced he will retire from the e-commerce giant in the coming months after nearly 10 years heading Netanya-based Israeli development center of 330 people, a statement from eBay said. Matalon led the company to international success, which included the acquisition of Israeli startups like analytics company SalesPredict. Moti Eliav will replace Matalon. Prior to joining eBay in 2016, Eliav served as CEO of Limlight Networks Israel, CEO of GaiaMobile US, and senior management positions at BMC Software and ServiceNow in Israel and the US. In an interview this month, Matalon told Israeli daily Globes that eBay needs “to do a better job” and assured the media publication that they will see a dramatic change in the design of eBay coming soon. “We have 150 million users, but we realized that in order to conquer the next 100 million we need to change, and once there are innovations, it will break the glass ceiling of people who today may be reluctant to buy things online,” he said.
