MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: LinkedIn has hired Jose Mallabo, eBay's director of corporate communications, for a newly created communications position. Mallabo will serve as director of corporate communications and oversee the development of LinkedIn's PR strategies in non-European international markets like India, Canada, and Australia, according to Kay Luo, senior director of corporate communications at LinkedIn. Mallabo, who started on June 15, will also provide support to US and global corporate communications team. He reports to Luo.

This is the second high-profile departure from eBay recently. Wendy Sept, who headed consumer marketplace PR for eBay, joined SanDisk in May. Alan Marks, SVP of corporate communications at eBay, did not immediately respond to inquiries about replacements for either position.
