eBay’s Jeff King Joins SignatureLink Board of Advisors
RIDGELAND, Miss., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Jeff King, head of strategy and platform partnerships at eBay Inc., has joined the SignatureLink Board of Advisors. In his role as an advisory board member, King will primarily provide guidance in the areas of eCommerce platform integration and marketplace strategy.
SignatureLink, the eCommerce stabilizer whose SecureBuy(TM) is the world’s only end-to-end eCommerce fraud solution, approached King after deploying its SecureBuy(TM) extension for the Magento eCommerce platform. King leads Magento’s Strategy and Partner Development Team as part of X.commerce and is known throughout the industry as an expert on product and commerce strategy — and, said SignatureLink CEO Greg Wooten, that’s exactly the kind of insight SignatureLink desired on its Board of Advisors.
“Jeff is an industry and platform strategist at the highest level,” Wooten stated. “The SignatureLink team looks forward to his input as we move ahead with key initiatives.”
King, who oversees product integration, co-creation, joint marketing and lead generation to drive partner success on eBay’s X.commerce platform, has been with eBay Inc. for nine years. In that time, he has directed the eBay Trust & Safety Product Team, managed the North America Selling & Features business unit, and led the Search Product Team.
Prior to joining eBay, King received hands-on training in business and technology at some of Silicon Valley’s most celebrated success stories, including Apple, Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM and Sun Microsystems. A Silicon Valley local, King is an active angel investor and advisor to several eCommerce start-ups.
“We are expanding the SignatureLink Board of Advisors through the addition of thought leaders in eCommerce, payments services and other mission-critical areas,” said Wooten. “When we were determining who would be the best fit for the board, Jeff King was a top choice. We’re excited to welcome him to SignatureLink.”
