Greg was president at Airbnb during a period of dynamic acceleration, where he oversaw the company’s $30 billion-plus Homes business with hosts in 100,000 cities, as well as the Luxe, Hotels, Airbnb for Work, and Superhost programs. His activities included the launch of the Long-term Stays program in 2020, the International Olympic Committee partnership, new real estate ventures, and Airbnb’s acquisitions of Hotel Tonight, Luckey, Gaest, and UrbanDoor.
Prior to Airbnb, Greg had a distinguished two-decade career at Amazon, where he made his mark early on with the inception and launch of Prime, expanding the media marketplace globally, and introducing dozens of new physical and digital products and categories. He resided in Europe for six years while managing Amazon’s various European consumer businesses, including the launch of Amazon’s eCommerce websites in Italy, Spain and subsequently India and Brazil. Ultimately, he came full circle to lead Amazon’s global Prime program, growing subscriptions to more than 100 million members while introducing dozens of new member benefits across the Amazon ecosystem. Before Amazon, Greg held leadership positions at Sun Microsystems, United Airlines, McDonnell Douglas and Boeing.
Greg enjoys cycling, skiing, theater, and history, as well as tinkering with new technical innovations. The privilege of managing the world’s largest bookstore further amplified a lifelong love of reading. Greg and his wife have always enjoyed traveling, and not too surprisingly, one of his favorite activities remains meeting hosts and guests on Airbnb.
Greg holds an M.B.A. from the Haas School of Management at the University of California, Berkeley, and a Master’s in Systems Management from Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Washington.
