FLASH: Meg Whitman retiring from eBay, JD to take the reins?

January 21, 2008

WSJ just rolled an article ($ subscription required) (must have been embargoed) that details Meg’s plans to retire from eBay and says details are coming ‘within weeks’.  The article mentions Donahoe, but doesn’t specifically say he’ll be taking over upon her retirement, but I’d be shocked if that’s not the case.

This is one of many announcements in the next 2wks that are going to really reshape the face of eBay as we know it.  Hang on to your seats kids!
