Silicon Valley Business Journal Spotlights Alum at eBay

Chris Plasser, MBA 04, head of product at RedLaser, part of eBay mobile, made the "40 under 40" list compiled by the Silicon Valley Business Journal last month.

The list features "amazing people under the age of 40 impacting their industries and their communities." The honorees on the list were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee to represent the best of Silicon Valley.

Plasser, who hails from Austria, joined eBay to work at PayPal on new payment solutions, including mobile transactions. For the last year and a half, he has been overseeing a startup-like team of 19 employees, including product managers, designers, and engineers, on cutting-edge mobile shopping experiences. He has grown use of RedLaser from 13 million to 22 million users in one year.
