Head of Shipping & Orders, Etsy
Roman Sobieri began his career in aerospace engineering at Pratt & Whitney, but followed his interests in the growing eCommerce industry to Fujifilm. As the first product leader in the new digital image printing technology, he transformed a traditional film printing company into the top US online and in-store retail digital image printing fulfillment business.
He spent the next eight years, first as Director of Product Management, and later as Vice President of Shipping and Operations, on the early startup team building Borderfree into the dominant global cross-border, turn-key solution for the retail industry.
After a successful IPO and later Borderfree acquisition by Pitney Bowes, Roman became responsible for global cross-border delivery for the new combined retailers and marketplaces business at Pitney Bowes as Vice President of Global Shipping Operations.
Roman has been the Head of Shipping at Etsy for the past year, and has recently added Head of Payments and Listing Management to his growing responsibilities. Roman holds a Mechanical Engineering Degree from University of Connecticut and a MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
