TYSONS CORNER, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeValet, emerging leader in contactless home delivery, announced today the appointment of Steve Yankovich, former strategic advisor for the company, as Chief Experience Officer. With more than 35 years of technology experience accelerating product and business innovation with significant results, he’s helped to scale future-looking technologies and experiences that will drive new approaches to connecting retailers, merchants and sellers with consumers around the world.
Yankovich joins HomeValet from eBay where he most recently served as VP, Head of Buyer Experience and Growth. During his eight years at the company, Yankovich fueled innovation, was responsible for the development of eBay’s global mobile e-commerce business and oversaw buyer experience from end to end. Prior to joining eBay, Yankovich was the Chief Technology Officer of Magento where he led the global product team and supported the company’s growth strategy. Yankovich additionally has held roles at Adobe, Movaris Inc., and served as a start-up board and VC advisor to over 10 companies in the e-commerce, mobile, connected devices and technology space. As an experienced product visionary, inventor and engineer by trade, Yankovich has remained focused on innovative future-facing product solutions throughout his career and holds a patent portfolio of 100+ globally.
“I am thrilled to join HomeValet as the Chief Experience Officer because I believe it is the only solution of its kind that will truly enable consumers to benefit from the convenience of e-commerce. The company possesses an ironclad mission for good, and is uniquely positioned to have game-changing impacts on the next level of e-commerce adoption by consumers,” said Steve Yankovich. “I look forward to working closely with the team to introduce HomeValet to the market and provide consumers with a home delivery solution fit to meet their needs, not the other way around.”
Yankovich’s appointment as Chief Experience Officer follows HomeValet’s strategic acquisition in September of Envolve Engineering, which brought a team of seasoned innovators and engineers in-house to the company. Building on this momentum and utilizing data-driven methods to meet and anticipate consumer needs, Yankovich will be responsible for overseeing the continued development of HomeValet’s end to end consumer, retailer and partner experience, and will work closely on the development of product, mobile application, and implementation of CRM.
“Steve has been an advisor to HomeValet for some time now and since day one there has been a strong synergy and shared vision for the future of HomeValet and the industry at large,” said Jack Simms, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of HomeValet. “He brings years of experience developing technology solutions and accelerating business growth as an innovator steadily focused on the future, which will support the company as we reimagine the current ecommerce delivery supply chain and deliver upon our mission to provide consumers with freedom, convenience and peace of mind.”
