Roku announced that Dan Jedda, a 15-year veteran of Amazon and former CFO of Stitch Fix, will join the company as chief financial officer effective May 1.
He will report to Roku founder/CEO Anthony Wood. Jedda will succeed current CFO Steve Loudon, who announced last year he would leave Roku. According to the company, Loudon will work closely with Jedda during transition period before Loudon exits the company in August 2023.
Since 2020, Jedda has been the CFO at internet personal-styling service Stitch Fix. He oversees global corporate finance, investor relations, financial planning and reporting, accounting, tax, treasury and internal audit. Prior to Stitch Fix, Jedda worked at Amazon for 15 years, predominantly as VP and CFO for digital video (including Amazon Studios), digital music, and the advertising and corporate development organizations. He also oversaw the Digital Video and Advertising Economist and Analytics team.
“As our U.S. active accounts approach half of U.S. broadband households, we are thrilled to have Dan join our executive team,” said Wood in announcing Jedda’s hire. “As we recently shared, we are committed to a path that delivers positive adjusted EBITDA next year, and Roku will benefit from Dan’s relevant experience and proven leadership as we move through our next stage of growth.”
Jedda commented, “I am excited to join one of the most interesting, innovative, and successful companies in the industry at a pivotal time. I look forward to working with Anthony and team to help continue driving growth, building Roku’s position as the No. 1 TV streaming platform in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and focusing on profitability.”
Before his stint at Amazon, Jedda served as a controller for Toshiba America. He also spent several years at Honeywell and ADC Telecommunications in various business finance roles, including treasury and internal audit. He received a B.A. in accounting and finance from the University of St. Thomas and an MBA from the University of Minnesota.
