Greeley joins Airbnb from Amazon, having most recently led the company’s Amazon Prime program that he helped to invent and launch back in 2005. Since then, and largely under Greeley’s leadership, the platform has grown into ecommerce’s most successful membership program.

Previous to his position within Amazon’s Prime unit, Greeley acted as Vice President of International and Category Expansion at the company, overseeing the launch of Amazon’s consumer business in both India and Brazil. Further, he also managed Amazon’s European consumer business and served as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Amazon International.

“We want one billion guests to experience Airbnb, living like a local and being welcomed in every home,” Chesky continued. “Greg is the perfect person to lead our Homes business and help us realize this vision.”

Greeley will report directly to the company CEO in his new role.
