Nestor told CMO she’s now joining Hilton Hotels as VP of marketing and ecommerce for the Asia-Pacific region.

“Hilton is on a huge growth trajectory with a massive pipeline of new hotels so it’s a really exciting time to be joining and I’m really looking forward to being involved in the hospitality industry,” she said.

Nestor was offered the role at the same time as her husband was offered a Singapore-based position, making it a great time for the family to relocate, she said.

A spokesperson for eBay confirmed eBay Australia’s chief operations officer, Amrita Blickstead, will now lead the marketing function.
