eBay's making some changes to its board of directors as announced in the company's recent 8-K filing with the SEC and a company press release.
Kathleen Mitic, Chair of Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee, will be leaving the board, effective September 15, 2022 and Aparna Chennapragada will be joining the board, effective immediately.
On August 18, 2022, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of eBay Inc. (the “Company”) increased its size to 10 members and appointed Aparna Chennapragada as a member of the Board effective immediately. Her term will expire at the Company’s 2023 annual meeting of stockholders or at such time as her respective successor has been elected and qualified. Ms. Chennapragada has not been named to a committee of the Board at this time.
On August 18, 2022, Kathleen Mitic provided notice to the Company of her retirement as a member of the Board effective September 15, 2022. Immediately following Ms. Mitic’s retirement from the Board, the Board’s size will be decreased to 9 members. Ms. Mitic’s decision to leave the Board was not as a result of any disagreement with the Company.
Chennapragada recently stepped down from her role as Chief Product Officer at Robinhood, and was previously VP and GM for Consumer Shopping at Google and served on the board of Capital One.
We are excited to have Aparna join our Board of Director. Aparna will bring extensive experience in consumer products and businesses powered by foundational technologies such as AI, Augmented Reality and Blockchain. Her expertise will help eBay, helping us to further support the company’s tech-led reimagination.
Separately, we want to thank Katie for her service to the Board of Directors. Katie has been with us since 2011 and has provided exceptional guidance, expertise and insights.
As the Chair of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, she helped guide the board through a number of changes over the years and helped shape it into a board that is richly diverse in backgrounds and perspectives that has helped support eBay’s management team in executing its long-term strategy. Thank you, Katie, for your leadership and tremendous contributions.
