Suryadevara Joins Stripe as CFO
August 11, 2020
Dhivya Suryadevara will be joining
the company as Chief Financial Officer. She brings a wealth of
experience from General Motors, where she managed a business operating
at massive scale and helped steer the transformation of the iconic
manufacturer. As Stripe’s reach expands across the globe, Dhivya will
play a crucial role in enabling this aggressive growth while maintaining
the highest standards in discipline and fiscal responsibility.
At the Fortune 20 company, Dhivya
oversaw financial operations amounting to over $100 billion in annual
revenue and millions of vehicles delivered annually by 180,000 employees
across six continents. She has a track record of leadership in a
high-scale environment and a proficiency in strategic transformation.
She played a significant role in capital allocation and spearheaded
numerous strategic transactions for the company.
“I’m very excited to join Stripe at a pivotal time for the company.
Stripe’s mission to increase the GDP of the internet is more important
now than ever,” Dhivya Suryadevara commented. “I really enjoy leading
complex, large-scale businesses and I hope to use my skills to help
accelerate Stripe’s already steep growth trajectory.”
With more than 400 new employees coming on board thus far in 2020,
Stripe now has a 2,800-strong workforce across 16 global offices keeping
the service performing reliably for millions of businesses worldwide.
Stripe has ramped up international expansion significantly over the past
year, launching the service in 15 new countries across Latin America,
Asia Pacific and Europe.
appointment follows the recent appointments of Mike Clayville, formerly
of Amazon Web Services, as Stripe’s Chief Revenue Officer, and Trish
Walsh, previously at Voya Financial, as General Counsel. She joins at a
point when the dislocations of 2020 spur a marked shift to online
commerce. Stripe will soon have paid out $10 billion to customers that
joined Stripe since the onset of the pandemic in the US in March.
“Dhivya is a rare leader who has run an industry-leading leviathan but
also gets excited about enabling the brand-new products and the
yet-to-be invented products, too”, said John Collison, co-founder of
Stripe. “She has the expertise and the instincts to help steer Stripe
through our growth in the years ahead.”
