Executive Leaders

Scott Schenkel

Interim Chief Executive Officer

Scott Schenkel is eBay’s interim CEO, a role he assumed in September of 2019 after four years as the company’s Chief Financial Officer.

A strong, dynamic and accomplished leader, as CFO Scott oversaw all aspects of eBay’s finance, analytics, and information technology functions – including controllership, financial planning and analysis, tax, treasury, audit, mergers and acquisitions, and investor relations.

Before becoming CFO of eBay, Scott had been Senior Vice President and CFO of eBay Marketplaces for over six years. Scott joined eBay in March 2007 as Vice President FP&A, and was appointed the following year to lead the finance function across the Marketplaces business.

Prior to that, Scott spent over 16 years in finance with General Electric, in a variety of roles around the world. His last position at GE was CFO of GE Healthcare Clinical Systems – a global manufacturer, distributor, and servicer of monitoring, cardiology, and ultrasound equipment and clinical information technology solutions. Previously, Scott was the CFO for GE Medical Information Technologies (Milwaukee, WI); GE Plastics Europe (Holland); and GE Lighting Europe (London and Budapest). Scott spent more than six years with GE’s Corporate Audit Staff working globally within GE on a variety of strategic, M&A integration, financial, and compliance-oriented auditing and consulting engagements. Scott started his career on GE’s Financial Management Program.

He has a B.S. in Finance from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University’s Pamplin College of Business.

Scott is an avid baseball fan – when he’s not at his son’s games, he can often be found at Oracle Park watching the San Francisco Giants. In his spare time, Scott loves to ski, mountain bike, and golf – and often trades out his gear by selling on eBay sites.

Scott's Favorite eBay Experience:

"My favorite eBay experience was selling a used kid’s mountain bike to a local buyer. As I pulled the bike out of my car in the Starbucks parking lot, the two kids there with their mother to buy it went crazy… clearly, it made their day with something that now had a second life instead of just gathering dust in my garage."
