StubHub has brought on three new members to its leadership team, including chief product and technology officer, Arnie Katz, the company announced Wednesday (April 3). 

The online ticket exchange company appointed Miguel Giribet Giral as vice president of global eCommerce and Stephanie Burns as vice president and general counsel. In a press release, StubHub said the new executives bring decades of business and eCommerce experience and will help drive the company's "next phase of growth."

“I’m thrilled to welcome these new leaders to StubHub,” said Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, president of StubHub. “Arnie, Miguel and Stephanie have a variety of experience across both smaller and larger companies, which will serve StubHub well at this stage in our growth. They also share a deep understanding of the eCommerce space, having worked at some of the world’s most well-known and respected companies, including Walmart, Amazon and Vente-privee. They are great additions to our leadership team.”

Katz previously served as Walmart's vp of international commerce, where he led a globally distributed team on developing eight eCommerce platforms and took ownership of product, technology and design. 

Based in Madrid, Giral comes to StubHub from international fashion outlet Privalia, where he served as chief commercial officer. In his new role as vp of global eCommerce, Giral will oversee StubHub's growth internationally. 

Burns was most recently Amazon's vice president and associate general counsel, where she led a team of lawyers and legal professionals in supporting the company's transportation and logistics, drone delivery, robotics, Prime Now, customer fulfillment, customer service, product and social responsibility. 

StubHub's future has remained hazy as of late. In early March, eBay -- Stubhub's parent company -- said it was considering selling or spinning off StubHub and its classified ads business at the urge of an "activist investor" who believed the assets were undervalued. eBay is currently engaged in a "strategic review" but has not announced a final decision on the ticket service.
