The NCEast Alliance is excited to host keynote speaker, Chad Dickerson, former CEO of Etsy. Chad’s experience has given him a full appreciation of community building and the impact it yields.

Chad was CTO at Etsy from September 2008 until July 2011, leading a team that built Etsy’s core platform in its critical early years. Before joining Etsy, Chad led Yahoo’s Brickhouse & Advanced Products incubators, and the Yahoo! Developer Network. He created the Yahoo! Hack Day initiative in 2005, the first internal innovation program of its kind in a large company. Under Chad’s leadership, Etsy was known for its company culture and commitment to social responsibility. Etsy made the Best Places to Work list every year from 2013 to 2016 and the company became a Certified B Corporation in 2012, recognizing the power of business to generate social good.
