"Other featured speakers at IRCE include a soon-to-be-named key executive of eBay, who will explain how the #1 e-retail portal is evolving to help established web merchants expand their Internet reach;"
- A featured speaker, at this type of event, is usually a senior executive, so it could really only be one of four eBay execs; John Donahoe (not likely) Lorrie Norrington President of eBay Marketplaces, Stephanie Tilenius, Sr. VP of eBay North America or Dinesh Lathi, VP of Seller Experience, so why were they not named? Perhaps none of those executives are assured of being with the company as late as June 2009, so they don't want to name somebody and then have to replace them.
- Or they just haven't drawn straws yet to determine who will speak. After all they were able to provide the topic of that featured session:
"In its more than dozen years of existence, eBay has evolved with the Internet, from providing millions of entrepreneurs an easy way to start a business to enabling established retailers to extend their reach on the Internet. Now, with a change in leadership, eBay is going through further evolution that the company hopes will attract and engage more consumers and boost revenue for eBay sellers. An eBay executive in charge of transforming the user experience at eBay will lay out in detail where eBay is heading and how retailers large and small can take advantage of the new eBay."
