Peter Mansour, who led eBay’s Bellevue operation and served as the company’s vice president of shipping and marketing technologies, has been named president of InfoSpace, the Internet search business that’s now a part of Bellevue-based Blucora.
Earlier this week, Mansour was publicly announced as general manager of eBay’s Seattle area operations, replacing Ken Moss who left to become CTO at Electronic Arts. He had been serving in that role since June 18.
Prior to eBay, Mansour worked at Microsoft as a general manager, working on Bing and OneApp.
Mansour replaces Mike Glover, who is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. A spokeswoman at Blucora could not share details about his next month.
Glover had worked at InfoSpace for 14 years, dating back to the company’s acquisition of Go2Net in 2000.
“I am pleased to welcome Peter to the Blucora team,” said Blucora CEO Bill Ruckelshaus. “Peter is a seasoned executive who brings a wealth of experience in strategy, operational management and technology leadership. Peter understands the online advertising and media market and will be a fantastic new leader as we continue to evolve InfoSpace and HowStuffWorks.”
Blucora purchased online content site HowStuffWorks in May for $45 million.
In addition to InfoSpace and HowStuffWorks, the company operates search sites such as Zoo.com, WebCrawler and Dogpile. The company’s search and content business accounted for $79.8 million in revenue for the three months ended June 30, the largest business unit at Blucora, but one whose revenues are falling.
