eBay vice president Dinesh Lathi has left eBay Inc. for a new job at One Kings Lane, a home-décor retail site.
Lathi, who most recently oversaw Seller and Buyer Experience at eBay, will be One Kings Lane's chief financial officer, and head of finance, operations and customer service, according to reports. During Lathi's seven years at eBay, he headed up programs including eBay's Top-rated seller program, and was eBay's senior director for North American Finance.
Lathi's departure comes about two months after eBay president and CEO John Donahoe brought in former media executive Devin Wenig to be president of eBay Marketplaces. Wenig replaced Lorrie Norrington, who left the company more than a year ago.
eBay has not announced who will replace Lathi.
Lathi is not the first eBay official to join One Kings Lane. Last year, Greg Fant, eBay's vice president of Marketing and Consumer Insights, joined the retailer as its chief marketing officer.
One Kings Lane employs more than 200 people in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The 2-year-old company's revenue is expected to pass the $100-million mark this year, according to reports.
