    Head of Ebay Partner Network Leaving
    Here's an interesting forum post I ran across today, eBay's Steve Hartman, AKA head guy on the EPN team is leaving. From the forum post, its hard to tell if he is staying with eBay or moving to another company.

    They probably summarily terminated him by accident.

    Yeah, this whole story about Steve Hartman cracks me up! I was given two different email addresses for him, when I was going through my repeated EPN terminations, and told to contact him. I was told by both people who gave me those email addresses that I really need to send repeated emails to him and he would respond and probably be able to help me.

    I sent a couple of emails to each of the two addresses. Never got a response.

    However, Steve, if you're reading this (and why in the world WOULD you be reading this??) and need me to give you a character reference to get your EPN job back -- send me email and I'll do what I can.

    The way these things go, though, he probably got promoted, lol.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    according to breskly colombia univ page

    http://www.berkeley.columbia.edu/com...e_hartman.html

    i think he was appointed to EPN in 2008 many things happened in 2008 where ebay affiliate moved out of CJ and had EPN in place and in aug mass bans took place and started talking abt "engagement" of users .. correct me if iam wrong..

    With any luck they won't have an affiliate program.

    I have to agree. I've made a lot more money from EPN under Hartman, but I still think that his tenure at EPN was completely disastrous for the program.

    Steve got his big fat bonus cheque for making EPN more efficient (ie worthless) and he's off to destroy ecommerce in another sector.

    Good riddance! Shouldn't we send a link of this thread to his new employer so that they know how popular he is?
