Google hires eBay veteran Tilenius as commerce VP
The hire comes as the company is strengthening its position in the e-commerce space. Last month, Google began selling Nexus One mobile phones on its own e-commerce site. Google has also said that it plans to launch an e-book store this year.
Tilenius comes to Google from eBay, where she served in a number of roles across eBay properties, including PayPal. Her most recent position was SVP and general manager for eBay North America and global product.
Although a Google spokesperson confirmed the details of her hire, Tilenius was not available for comment.
