Meg Whitman

CEO, eBay

As president and CEO of eBay Inc. since March 1998, Meg Whitman has led the company to its current standing as an unparalleled global e-commerce engine. Meg’s expertise in brand building, combined with her consumer technology experience, has built eBay into a leading company that is reshaping online commerce, payments and communications around the world.

Prior to eBay, Meg was general manager of Hasbro Inc.’s Preschool Division, responsible for global management and marketing of two of the world's best-known children's brands, Playskool and Mr. Potato Head. During her tenure, Meg oversaw the reorganization of the Preschool Division and its resulting return to profitability. From 1995 to 1997, Meg was president and chief executive officer of Florists Transworld Delivery (FTD), the world’s largest floral products company. While at FTD, she oversaw its transition from a florist-owned association to a for-profit, privately owned company.

Before FTD, Meg served as president of the Stride Rite Corporation's Stride Rite Division where she was responsible for the launch of the highly successful Munchkin baby shoe line and the repositioning of the Stride Rite brand and retail stores. She has also held the positions of executive vice president for the Keds Division and corporate vice president of strategic planning. Meg spent 1989 to 1992 at the Walt Disney Company, highlighted by her work as senior vice president of marketing for the Disney Consumer Products Division. She also worked for eight years at Bain & Company’s San Francisco office where she was a vice president. Meg began her career at Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati where she worked in brand management from 1979 to 1981.

Among Meg’s many accolades, The Wall Street Journal named her one of the 50 women to watch in 2005 and 2006; Fortune has consistently ranked her among the top three most powerful women in business; and BusinessWeek has included her on its list of the 25 most powerful business managers annually since 2000. She is one of only five women in the world to have been consecutively ranked among the world’s most influential people by Time Magazine.

Meg is on the Board of Directors of Procter & Gamble and DreamWorks Animation. Meg received a Bachelor of Economics from Princeton University and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School.
