In 2021, we aim to make all of our leadership more accessible to our employees. As part of that plan, we’re having quarterly conversations with members of Yelp’s Board of Directors. To kick things off, we invited Tony Wells, USAA’s Chief Brand Officer, who joined Yelp’s board in October last year.
Our CEO, Jeremy Stoppelman, and Tony Wells covered an array of topics. From career development, mentorship, life as a Marine, the importance of feedback, and forming your personal board of directors, Tony imparted valuable lessons to over 500 of our employees. Tony also led with vulnerability and shared challenges he’s faced as a result of his race.
We look forward to hosting more members of Yelp’s board and continuing the conversation on what makes Yelp a great place for all.
