2017 has been a banner year for Dropbox, and I’m excited to close it out by welcoming another great addition to our Board of Directors. Don Blair brings more than three decades of financial and management expertise on a global scale and will serve on our Board’s Audit Committee.
Don was most recently the CFO at NIKE. During his 16-year tenure, he was widely regarded as one of the best CFOs in the S&P 500. On his watch, NIKE’s revenue more than tripled and its market value increased more than eight-fold.
NIKE has long been a source of inspiration to me, and it was clear from the first time I met Don that we shared a belief in building a brand — and a business — that stand for something.
Before NIKE, Don was an executive at PepsiCo, with assignments including CFO for PepsiCo Japan (based in Tokyo) and CFO of Pepsi-Cola International’s Asia Division (based in Hong Kong). He currently sits on the Board of Corning Incorporated and holds a B.S. and MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Don knows how to build a sustainable business for the long-term, and we’re looking forward to drawing on his expertise as we continue to grow and scale our company.
