Former eBay Canada GM Jordan Banks Gets a New Job

I always liked Jordan Banks and I wish him well in his new position.

The Canadian Press is reporting:

Internet broadcaster JumpTV (TSX:JTV) has appointed former EBay Canada general manager Jordan Banks as its new chief executive in a bid to begin growing revenues from the sports content licensed to the Toronto company.

JumpTV said Monday that Banks, a former legal executive with the National Hockey League Players' Association, will take over Nov. 12.

"What (the CEO appointment) allows me to do at Jump is take all my learnings and experience from my global sports experience as well as what it took to build EBay from pretty much a nascent business in this country to one that has well over five million users that are doing over $1 billion in activity a year," Banks told a conference call after stock markets closed Monday.
