Former eBay general manager Miriam Lahage is to join Austrian retailer Peek & Cloppenburg.

Lahage, who left eBay in February, will join the fashion retailer on June 1 as managing director of new business.

Lahage tweeted on Saturday that she was “excited” to take up the position in which she will spend the week in Austria and the weekends in London.

Independent retailer advisor Guy Hipwell has also been working with Peek & Cloppenburg in recent months.

Lahage joined eBay in September 2010 after working as a consultant for Net-a-Porter and was previously chief executive of discount fashion etailer

Prior to that she was vice president of TJX Companies, which operates off-price fashion chain TK Maxx.

Ebay said it would not be hiring a direct replacement for Lahage, but that her responsibilities would be delegated.

The retailer said in March: “With her fashion and retail expertise, Miriam has helped to lead the evolution of eBay’s fashion strategy and our business development activities with fashion brands and retail partners. We thank Miriam for her partnership and leadership, and wish her well in her next career move.”
