EBay Hires Finance Chief From JetBlue
By Maria Armental
EBay Inc. has hired JetBlue Airways Corp.'s Steve Priest to take
over as chief financial officer in late June.
The 51-year-old Mr. Priest, who is slated to join eBay on June
21, will report directly to Chief Executive Jamie Iannone.
Andy Cring, who has served as interim CFO since September 2019,
will stay on the post until Mr. Priest joins in June and then
assist with the transition, eBay said Monday.
"With his rich background as a strategic business leader and
skilled operator, Steve brings extensive experience in generating
results by investing in technology, driving innovation and focusing
relentlessly on the customer," Mr. Iannone said in a statement.
"The airline industry is known to be incredibly competitive,
forever operating on tight margins, high customer expectations and
the endless need to evolve. I'm excited for Steve to bring his
unique and valuable perspective to eBay."
