SPIRIT OF SILICON VALLEY LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Honoring Devin Wenig, CEO, eBay

The Silicon Valley Leadership Group is proud to present its “Spirit of Silicon Valley Lifetime Achievement Award” to Devin Wenig, Chief Executive Officer of eBay.

Devin Wenig is eBay’s President & CEO. He is the 3rd CEO in the Company’s history. A purpose-driven global technology leader, Devin became CEO in July 2015, after overseeing eBay’s Marketplaces business as its President.

Under his leadership, eBay’s annual Gross Merchandise Volume grew from $60.3 billion in 2011 to $95 billion in 2018. During the same period, eBay’s customer base of active buyers worldwide grew by 81 percent.

During his tenure at eBay, Devin has led a transformation of the business, including a technology and data-led replatforming using structured data to catalog eBay’s vast inventory; investing in artificial intelligence capabilities; activating a sharpened and more clearly differentiated brand; redesigning eBay’s mobile experiences; and expanding global reach both geographically and by category. Devin is also leading eBay on a multi-year rollout of a new end-to-end managed payments experience on its platform.

Devin joined eBay in September 2011 after more than 18 years at global technology/media company Thomson Reuters, where he was CEO of Thomson Reuters Markets. In that role, he led the global media and financial services businesses—which provide technology, news, and data to corporations, media, and consumers.

He is a sports fan, runner, amateur coder, and art enthusiast. He is passionate about using technology to make a positive impact on communities around the world.

Devin received a B.A. from Union College, and a J.D. from Columbia University Law School. In addition to the eBay Board, he also serves on the Board of Directors of General Motors, is a member of the Consumer Industries Steering Committee for the World Economic Forum, and a member of the Business Council.
