BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wayfair (NYSE: W), one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, today announced that Ed Macri, Chief Product & Marketing Officer, will retire from the company in 2021.
Macri joined Wayfair in 2007. In a variety of roles of increasing responsibility, he helped build Wayfair’s world-class marketing organization, including a differentiated and proprietary advertising technology stack, strong industry partnerships, and a highly talented team. He will remain a part of the Wayfair leadership team through June 30, 2021 as he supports the transition.

“Ed has been an exceptional leader at Wayfair, and partner to me and Steve personally,” said Niraj Shah, CEO, co-founder and co-chairman. “During his 14 years, Ed helped drive Wayfair’s evolution from an e-commerce start-up to a leading global platform with more than $14 billion in 2020 revenue. We are incredibly well positioned thanks to Ed’s many contributions and his long term succession plan, and we know he shares our enthusiasm about the progress the marketing team will continue to make under Bob’s leadership.
