To the TCGplayer Community:

I’ve happily poured my life into building TCGplayer over the past 25 years to have an incredible positive impact on local brick-and-mortar hobby stores and the broader collectibles community. Today I have made the decision that I am officially stepping down as CEO.

I plan to spend time on myself, friends and family, and experience many of the important things in life that I have forgone while focusing solely on TCGplayer all these years. I've reached this decision only after careful thought and consideration, and this decision is only made possible because of the amazing team and culture we’ve built and the incredible support from eBay.

I leave knowing that we captured the magic of the local hobby shop along with the love of its incredibly diverse community, and recreated that spirit within a tech company that has grown to 600 passionate people. And along the way we have been recognized as one of the nation's Best Workplaces for Women, and THE best workplace in Syracuse.

Moving forward, TCGplayer and eBay leadership are fully dedicated to the foundational mission of TCGplayer and will hold tight its Core Values as they recruit my successor. Gene Cook, who serves as eBay’s VP of Collectibles - with decades of experience in this category - will lead TCGplayer as part of the overall eBay portfolio. And, in the coming days, a new leader of TCGplayer will be named, and this person will spend most of their time on the ground in Syracuse.

It’s been a pleasure working with you over these last two decades, and our teams remain committed to supporting your partnership. If you have any questions about this announcement, please reach out to
