Paul Jones joins eBay

Online retailer and auction site eBay announced this month that it has brought in former Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) President of Asset Protection Paul Jones to serve as the company’s global director of retail partnerships.

Jones, who has more than a decade of experience managing loss prevention efforts for RILA, will work with eBay’s team of “Trust and Safety professionals” to help the company with its initiatives to prevent the sell of stolen goods, according to a statement issued by the firm.

"I look forward to working with eBay's outstanding team," Jones said. "eBay has demonstrated real leadership with its robust work to confront challenges related to retail theft and the sale of stolen goods. It is clear to me that eBay is committed to working with both retailers and law enforcement to address this issue head on."

Jones will also join a panel of industry experts next month for a SIW Webcast to discuss loss prevention strategies and related topics. For more information about the Webcast or to register visit,
