John Joseph Donahoe II
(born April 30, 1960) is president and CEO of eBay Inc, since March 31, 2008.
John Donahoe was born in Evanston, Illinois. His father was an accountant at Price Waterhouse in Chicago.
He graduated from New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois.
After his senior year of high school, a friend’s dad asked him to work at his Schlitz beer distribution company. “You’ll make good money,” he said. It was a union job and the first requirement was that he join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
Bain & Company
Before joining eBay he worked for Bain & Company (a worldwide consulting firm based in Boston) for 20 years, starting as an associate consultant and becoming the firm's president and CEO in 1999.
In March 2005 he was hired as president of eBay Marketplaces. His role was to focus on eBay's core business, which accounts for a large percentage of the company's revenues.
Donahoe has contributed to both parties, both to Republican candidate Congressman David Dreier of California as well as two Democrat candidates: Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, and Barbara Boxer of California.
He is married to Eileen Donahoe (née Chamberlain), the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, since November 2009.
They have four children, three sons and a daughter, and live in Portola Valley, California.
