Josh Silverman: Biography
As President of Skype, Josh Silverman oversees the company’s direction and strategy and manages its day-to-day operations. His priorities are to support the team in building the world's greatest communication products by making sure that everyone is rowing in the same direction every day. In his pre-Skype life, Josh served as CEO at Shopping.com, following a variety of management positions at eBay, including serving as Managing Director for Marktplaats.nl/eBay Netherlands; and leading the launch of eBay’s European Classifieds business.
Before joining eBay, Josh was co-founder and CEO of Evite, the leading social event planning site on the Web. He has also held management positions at ADAC Labs, Booz Allen Hamilton, and started his career on the staff of U.S. Senator Bill Bradley.
Josh graduated Magna Cum Laude from Brown University with a Bachelor of Arts. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where he was an Arjay Miller Scholar.
Josh admits to a passion for salsa dancing, theater and almost any kind of sport &mdash especially sand volleyball. These days, when not in the office, his exercise regimen includes high-speed chases of his three-year-old and one-year-old around the house. Occasionally he also breaks a sweat playing Guitar Hero.
