Chad Dickerson leads Etsy in its mission to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Etsy believes that business interests and social and environmental responsibility are interwoven and aligned, and that the power of business should be used to strengthen communities and empower people. To measure success against this commitment, the company became a Certified B Corporation in 2012. Prior to Etsy, Dickerson led Yahoo’s Advanced Products team and created the Yahoo! Hack Days program. An early advocate of the Internet as a disruptive platform, he began his career in media, holding positions at InfoWorld, Salon.com, CNN, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and The News and Observer.
