I have worked at eBay since 2007, in a variety of UK and European roles including running eBay’s major categories (like fashion and automotive) and setting up eBay’s first sales and business development team for retailers and brands. In my current role I am responsible for the end to end seller experience in Europe.

Before eBay, I spent time as a management consultant at Bain & Company in London and several years in commercial and marketing roles in the UK business of the financial services company Capital One. I graduated top of my INSEAD MBA class in 2005 and have an MA in English Literature from Cambridge.

I have two young daughters and love almost anything to do with sport and music.

Talking about a mobile revolution

Over the last few years, we’ve seen the growth of mobile accelerate internet connectivity and change the retail and marketing landscape forever, and Britain is at the forefront of this revolution. 

Many have dubbed 2011 the “year of the mobile”, and this is clear from looking at the eBay business, with over 10% of our sales in the UK coming via a mobile device.  

In the next three years, we predict that there will be more change in how people shop than there has been in the past 20 years. 

We believe mobile will play a vital role in this retail revolution, transforming shopping even more significantly than e-commerce did decades ago, as well as blurring the boundaries between online and offline.
