Amazon’s Dave Stephenson is heading to AirBnB as CFO
Dave Stephenson will be going to AirBnB as their new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) after a long stint with Amazon.
Dave joins Airbnb from a 17-year career at Amazon, where he was most recently Vice President and CFO of their Worldwide Consumer Organization, which is responsible for all of Amazon’s global website sales including Amazon Prime and subsidiaries such as Whole Foods and Zappos.
Before that, Dave was the Vice President for Amazon’s International Consumer business and has led finance across many areas of the company, including North America Retail, Merchant Services and Amazon Web Services (AWS). In addition, Dave has served as President and CFO of Big Fish Games and spent nearly a decade at Procter & Gamble in a variety of finance and engineering roles.
Dave is one of the best financial operators in the world and there’s no one better prepared to serve as our CFO. I’m proud of everything we’ve achieved, but Airbnb is just getting started. In the years ahead, Dave will be Airbnb’s quarterback for long-term growth, driving us to be even more efficient and leverage what makes Airbnb unique to create new businesses and continue to expand.
– Brian Chesky, CEO and Head of Community, AirBnB
