ContextLogic Inc. (d/b/a “Wish”) (NASDAQ: WISH) today announced that the company has appointed veteran technology executive and current Wish board director Jacqueline Reses as Executive Chair. Wish Founder and CEO Piotr Szulczewski will continue to serve as Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Reses was most recently the Executive Chairperson of Square Financial Services LLC and Capital Lead at Square Inc. This new leadership structure, which separates the roles of chair and chief executive officer, will support the business in its next phase of global growth.

In this newly created role, Ms. Reses will remain on Wish’s Board of Directors as well as lead the company’s critical commercial functions including customer experience, brand communications, strategic partnerships and Wish’s organizational growth.

“Jackie has an incredible track record of driving commercial success while creating highly engaged, culture-driven work environments,” said Wish Founder and CEO Piotr Szulczewski. “We decided to split the chair and CEO roles to both strengthen our senior leadership as well as to accelerate our long-term growth strategies.”

Throughout her more than 25-year career, Ms. Reses has helped technology, ecommerce and high growth start-ups launch new products, markets and revenue streams. Prior to Square, Jackie was the Chief Development Officer at Yahoo where she ran partnerships, acquisitions and investments, significant corporate tax transactions, as well as human resources. She also served on the board of Alibaba Group where she helped steward the company’s transition from a private to public company. Ms. Reses began her career as a finance executive at Apax Partners, a global private equity firm and Goldman Sachs. She holds a B.S. in Economics with honors from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Currently, Ms. Reses serves on the board of directors of Pershing Square Tontine Holdings, Ltd. and Affirm Inc. She is also the Chair of the Economic Advisory Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

“With a rapidly growing customer base in over 100 countries, Wish is at an important inflection point as we work to reimagine the future of ecommerce,” said Ms. Reses. “I am excited to partner with Piotr and the Wish team to deliver a broadening set of products and services to our passionate global community.”
