eBay CEO Devin Wenig has stepped down on Wednesday citing differences with eBay’s recently revamped board in the latest fallout from the Elliott Management saga.

“In the past few weeks it became clear that I was not on the same page as my new board. Whenever that happens, it’s best for everyone to turn that page over.”
