NobleSpirit Newsletter - eBay Hal Lawton’s Deep Dive into Fundamentals + NobleSpirit Honored
Great leadership vision and execution is key to driving business success. However, vision isn’t exclusively about the formation of compelling concepts or the formation of great unique ideas. Great vision is often about the the wisdom and courage to execute the mundane, yet elemental principles that establish the foundations of trust and shared goals that bind us together.
Hal Lawton, eBay VP Marketplaces, has only been at eBay for just over one year. In this short span of time, he has not only embraced the understanding that a marketplace is the sum of its parts, he has picked up the sharpest trowel he could find to get right to work on the building blocks of the eBay marketplace. eBay is a brick by brick construction of categories. Each category is a unique marketplace in itself. Economies within an economy.
This week, NobleSpirit was honored to be invited to eBay’s Top Seller Summit for Collectibles in San Jose. We were also quite pleasantly surprised and humbled when the audience was presented with a video showing of our corporate video (which can be found on noblespirit.com).
Reminiscent of our bi-annual PESA (gopesa.org) conferences, this top seller summit was major step forward for eBay in the right direction, with a huge difference from previous conferences. Laser focus. Penetration into the molecular composition of eBay at the category specific level. Whereas in the past, these summits have been general in nature, this one was the stuff of specialists.
A healthy marketplace is a direct reflection of a healthy seller base. At the core category level you will find competitors actively defining the philosophical implications and practical logistics of a market. The greater the number of competitors, the greater the validity and vibrancy. In addition, the greater the personal and professional interaction of these competitors among themselves, well then…..the far greater the possibility of identifying and realizing new and robust opportunity. Competition is a creative process.
eBay is a unique marketplace with 1 billion unique products in countless unique vertical categories, sold by a unique community of countless uniquely qualified competitors. Considering eBay’s capability to frame such a massive offensive and defensible strategic ecommerce advantage with its vast human and technological resources, I would assume this was certainly on Hal’s mind when he decided to roll his sleeves up and take a journey down to the shop floor where the action is. Among other things, one of the first orders of business was to significantly augment the number of category executives, managers and staff. It’s the volleys in the trenches that keep any good leader awake at night just as often as the board table.
