Uber任命首位CFO,为明年IPO做准备

8月22日消息,据CNBC报道,网约车巨头Uber日前宣布,在计划中的首次公开募股(IPO)前,该公司已任命韩国裔移民后代纳尔逊·蔡(Nelson Chai)为首席财务官。这家网约车公司正在努力收紧财务状况,为明年上市做准备。该公司最新公布的数据显示,Uber的估值约为600亿美元。

纳尔逊此前曾在保险集团Warranty、美林证券和纽约证交所-泛欧交易所工作过。自2015年以来,Uber没有首席财务官。该公司首席执行官达拉·科斯罗萨西(Dara Khosrowshahi)在声明中表示:“能邀请到像纳尔逊这样经验丰富、富有创新精神的人加盟,我感到无比兴奋。对于我和整个管理团队来说,他将是个很好的合作伙伴,推动我们朝着上市公司的方向前进。”

以下是Uber关于此次任命的完整声明:

Uber今天欢迎纳尔逊·蔡(Nelson J. Chai)担任首席财务官。纳尔逊曾在全球多家领先的上市金融服务和保险公司担任高级职位,拥有超过十年的丰富经验。在来Uber之前,纳尔逊为总部位于芝加哥的保险和保修服务提供商Warranty效力,担任其首席执行官。

此前,纳尔逊在CIT Group工作了五年多,离开之前担任总裁职务。在此之前,他曾先后担任美林证券、纽约证券交易所的母公司纽约泛欧交易所集团以及美国首家完全电子化股票交易所Archipelago Holdings的首席财务官。

纳尔逊表示:“Uber是世界上最具标志性和最令人兴奋的科技公司之一,我很荣幸能以首席财务官的身份加入。我期待与科斯罗萨西及其团队紧密合作,在公司强劲增长和前进势头的基础上继续前进。”

纳尔逊还是Thermo Fisher Scientific、宾夕法尼亚大学艺术与科学学院、联合国儿童基金会美国分支的董事会成员。他在宾夕法尼亚大学获得经济学学士学位,在哈佛商学院获得工商管理硕士学位。

Uber has named Nelson Chai as Chief Financial Officer ahead of a planned IPO, the company announced Tuesday.

The ride-hailing company has been trying to tighten up its financesas it prepares to go public next year. The most recent company-released numbers put Uber's valuation at around $60 billion.

Chai previously held executive roles at insurance group Warranty, Merrill Lynch and NYSE Euronext. Uber hasn't had a CFO since 2015.

"I'm incredibly excited to bring on someone as experienced and thoughtful as Nelson," Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a statement. "He will be a great partner for me and the entire management team as we move towards becoming a public company."

Here's Uber's full statement about the appointment:

Uber today welcomed Nelson J. Chai as Chief Financial Officer.

Nelson brings more than a decade of experience in senior positions at some of the world's leading publicly traded financial services and insurance companies. He joins Uber from the Chicago-based Warranty Group, an insurance and warranty provider, where he was CEO.

Previously, he spent more than five years at CIT Group, where he most recently served as President. Before that, he was Chief Financial Officer of Merrill Lynch & Co.; NYSE Euronext, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange; and Archipelago Holdings, the first fully electronic stock exchange in the United States.

"I'm incredibly excited to bring on someone as experienced and thoughtful as Nelson," said Dara Khosrowshahi, Uber CEO. "He will be a great partner for me and the entire management team as we move towards becoming a public company."

"Uber is one of the world's most iconic and exciting technology companies, and I'm honored to join as CFO," said Chai. "I look forward to working closely with Dara and team as we build on the company's strong growth and forward momentum."

Nelson serves on the boards of Thermo Fisher Scientific, the University of Pennsylvania School of Arts and Sciences, and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Business Administration from the Harvard Business School.
