PATH TO BECOMING A CFO

Dave Stephenson, CFO at Airbnb.

In conversation with Jeff Epstein, Operating Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners and former CFO at Oracle.
July, 2022
Zoom

In this Path To Becoming a CFO, our host Jeff Epstein will interview Dave Stephenson, CFO at Airbnb. Dave made the shift from engineering to finance early in his career while at Procter & Gamble. He jumped from the venerable consumer products company to a brash new startup called Amazon, where he played finance and operations roles in the different operating units of the company for nearly 12 years during its meteoric rise. In another bold move, Dave took on the President and CFO roles at Big Fish Games, where he spent over two years and then returned to Amazon for another five years when Big Fish was sold. In January 2019, Dave was tapped to be CFO at Airbnb.
