Ecorp Ltd has promoted Alison Deans to the new position of chief executive officer effective from July 1.

Currently e-corp's chief operating officer, a position she has held since the role was created 10 months ago, Deans joined ecorp's board this week.

Before joining ecorp Deans was managing director of online marketplace, eBay Australia and New Zealand, where she presided over its Australian launch in October 1999.
