Pittman's departure comes just days after Apple announced that Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts will be joining the company early next year as head of retail and online store operations, but sources tell AllThingsD that the timing was coincidental. Ahrendts' arrival will see a restructuring of Apple's sales efforts, with both retail and online operations operating under the same umbrella."I think it's pretty clear today eBay dominates the marketplace category," Pittman said in an interview with AllThingsD. "I'm excited to come in and reinvent the way people buy and sell."
"I loved what I was doing at Apple; it's a great company ... but eBay is on a completely different level by an order of magnitude when it comes to e-commerce," he added.
