Andre Haddad

CEO
Turo

Andre, Beirut-native, received his education in Paris and worked in France before immigrating to the U.S. Andre has had an eye on emerging business opportunities since the beginning of his career. He co-founded a hugely successful early European marketplace, iBazar, and later became the CEO of Shopping.com. Both companies were eventually acquired by eBay. After eight years in leadership at eBay, Andre has established himself as a marketplace expert and visionary. His prominent global experience led him to join Turo, the world's largest peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace, as CEO in 2011. Managing marketplaces certainly gave Andre an advantage when navigating a start up, but the added hurdle of building a business around an innovative concept, peer-to-peer car sharing, was a test of leadership and handling adversity. He now focuses on realizing Turo’s mission to put the world’s one billion cars to better use.
