Wall Street Veteran Edith W. Cooper Joins Etsy’s Board of Directors

Etsy has announced that Wall Street veteran Edith W. Cooper is joining the board of directors. Etsy is an e-commerce website that sells unique, handmade, and vintage goods.

The announcement, made Wednesday morning, comes just months after Cooper’s retirement as partner and global head of Human Capital Management at Goldman Sachs, a leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm.

“With Edith joining the board, we gain significant talent-management expertise, based on years of experience at leading global financial institutions. We are also honored that a person who called Brooklyn her home for many years is now working hand-in-hand with us to make our tech company even more successful,” said Etsy CEO Josh Silverman in a statement.

With over 30 years of experience in management and sales leadership at leading organizations across the financial services industry, Edith has used her broad experience in finance and focus on human capital to unlock innovation and collaboration in the workplace. A few of her past leadership roles were held at companies such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Bankers Trust. She’s also a member of the Board of Directors of Slack, the Museum of Modern Art and Mt. Sinai Hospital.

“Etsy’s mission to ‘Keep Commerce Human’ and its culture is revolutionary in the tech space. I have long admired Etsy’s drive to create value by investing in its people and fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace,” said Cooper. “I am honored to join the Board as Etsy continues to connect creative entrepreneurs with buyers around the world.”

Etsy was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
