爱彼迎动荡内幕:CFO走人,新来COO
_最新英语新闻

  In an executive shakeup, Airbnb Thursday said that its CFO, Laurence “L.T.” Tosi will be leaving the company and that CEO Brian Chesky’s longtime deputy Belinda Johnson would be elevated to the new role of COO. The company also said it is not going public in 2018.

  经历了高层动荡后,不久前爱彼迎宣布首席财务官劳伦斯.“L.T.”.托西将离职,长期任首席执行官布莱恩.切斯基副手的贝琳达.约翰逊将升任首席运营官。爱彼迎还宣布2018年不会上市。

  The Tosi news was sudden and unexpected; the news about Johnson likely not surprising to anyone familiar with her prominent role and reputation within the company.

  托西离职的消息很突然而且让人吃惊;熟悉约翰逊在爱彼迎的角色和重要性的人对其升职应该不会意外。

  Tosi joined Airbnb in 2015 from Blackstone, where he had been CFO since 2008. With Blackstone the largest private real estate investor in the world, and having just come off its buyout and subsequent IPO of Hilton, Tosi had unique real estate and hospitality industry experience. He also had a top flight Wall Street reputation: In 2011, he had reportedly been approached by Steve Jobs for the CFO role at Apple but turned it down, according to Bloomberg; he was at one point named as a possible successor to Stephen Schwarzman.

  托西于2015年加入爱彼迎,之前在黑石公司工作,从2008年开始担任首席财务官。黑石是全世界最大的私营地产投资公司,刚完成收购和推动希尔顿上市,所以托西积累了丰富的地产和酒店行业经验。他在华尔街名气很大,彭博报道称2011年史蒂夫.乔布斯曾找他出任苹果公司首席财务官,但他拒绝了。还曾有消息称他会成为黑石创始人史蒂芬.施瓦茨曼继任者。

  But tensions between Tosi and Chesky had recently escalated, due in part to Tosi’s wanting more responsibilities. According to an in-depth report from The Information,he was seeking to become either COO or president of the company’s core homes division. The report also said the two clashed over some of Chesky’s bold ideas—to expand into flights, for one, and other new initiatives that required a longer-term path to profitability. A source familiar with the company said the two had a “difference in philosophy” over how to manage Airbnb’s growth.

  但最近托西跟切斯基之间关系越发紧张,主要因为托西希望扩大职权。根据科技媒体The Information一篇深度报道,托西想担任首席运营官或核心业务民居部门总裁。报道还称二人对切斯基一些大胆想法存在异议,例如将业务拓展到航空领域,还有一些需要较长时间才能盈利的业务。一位熟悉该公司的人士表示,两人对爱彼迎将来如何发展“理念不一致”。

  For his part, Tosi said in a statement that “The two and half years I’ve spent at Airbnb have been some of the most thrilling of my career” and that “While the time is right for me to build my own business, I will miss working with the top tier teams we have assembled and am confident that they will continue to create value for Airbnb and our community.”

  托西在一份声明中表示,“在爱彼迎期间是我职业生涯中最兴奋的两年半”,还表示“虽然我要离开去追求自己的事业,但我会怀念在爱彼迎打造的顶尖团队,而且非常相信团队会继续为爱彼迎和社区创造价值。”

  Chesky, in a rare specific statement on the timing of the company’s IPO plans, said in the announcement that it would not take the company public this year. “I know people will ask what these changes mean for a potential IPO,” he said. “Let me address this directly. We are not going public in 2018.” Chesky has always insisted that the company would go public on its own timetable and not for a while; in early 2017, he told Fortunehe saw the process of getting ready for an IPO to be a two-year project and that at the time they were “halfway.” But once ready, he stressed, the company would be patient and deliberate about picking its moment. Last week, he articulated in a blog post his vision to make Airbnb a “21st Century Company,” one with an “infinite time horizon.”
