StubHub has bolstered its leadership team, naming Arnie Katz as its new vice-president and chief product and technology officer.
The ticketing firm has also named Miguel Giribet Giral as vice-president of global ecommerce, and Stephanie Burns as vice-president and general counsel. Giral was named as StubHub’s head of international last month.
Katz joins StubHub from his role as vice-president of international ecommerce at Walmart, where he was responsible for product, technology and design, and led a globally distributed team developing eight ecommerce platforms.
“I’m thrilled to welcome these new leaders to StubHub,” said Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, president of StubHub.
“Arnie, Miguel and Stephanie have a variety of experience across both smaller and larger companies, which will serve StubHub well at this stage in our growth. They also share a deep understanding of the ecommerce space, having worked at some of the world’s most well-known and respected companies, including Walmart, Amazon and Vente-privee. They are great additions to our leadership team.”
Giral joins the ticketing firm after spending eight years at international online fashion outlet Privalia, a division of Vente-privee Group, where he served as chief commercial officer and held a variety of general manager roles.
Stephanie joins StubHub from Amazon, where she spent nearly 15 years, most recently as vice-president and associate general counsel, worldwide operations.
