His dedication and insights have been instrumental to Yelp’s progress over the years. We are thankful for his service and wish him all the best moving forward.”

Jedda has served as the chief financial officer at Roku, a leading global TV streaming platform, since May 2023. Prior to joining Roku, he served as the chief financial officer at Stitch Fix, Inc., and spent 15 years at Amazon.com, Inc., where he notably contributed as vice president and chief financial officer for digital video, digital music, and advertising. He holds a B.S. in accounting and finance from the University of St. Thomas and a M.B.A. from the University of Minnesota.

“I am excited to join Yelp's Board of Directors and work alongside a team that is passionate about creating a vibrant community of businesses and consumers,” said Jedda.
