This week, eBay hosted Governor Gary Herbert (R-UT) at our headquarters in San Jose, California. Governor Herbert was elected in August 2009 and has since focused on economic development and transforming Utah into a top destination for business and job growth.
The meeting was attended by some of eBay’s senior leaders including CFO Scott Schenkel, SVP & General Counsel Marie Oh Huber, VP of Global Government Relations & Public Policy Cathy Foster, and VP of Tax Carol Tabrizi. This was a great opportunity to discuss eBay’s presence in Utah and our commitment to sustainability. The group had a great conversation about eBay’s focus on moving to 100% renewable energy in the electricity supplies at eBay data centers by 2025 and how we can best partner with Governor Herbert to meet those goals.
eBay would like to thank Governor Herbert for taking the time to visit our headquarters and we look forward to continuing these productive conversations with his team.
