A leadership vacuum was created at StubHub last summer when corporate parent eBay promoted Scott Cutler, StubHub’s president since 2015, to senior vice president of the Americas, running the entire marketplace businesses for the tech giant. In just 27 months at the helm, Cutler made huge strides in restoring StubHub’s reputation as a trusted business partner with teams and leagues, and he was a key figure in market-moving deals with the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Yankees, among others.

Since Cutler’s promotion, the company’s operational momentum has continued under the leadership of Perkins Miller, general manager of North America, and Chief Financial Officer Ajay Gopal, a period that has included new deals with the NFL and Major League Baseball. But the company has remained tight-lipped about the status or process of the president search, and it’s not known whether Miller or Gopal are candidates for the post.
