Steve Sordello oversees financial operations at LinkedIn. Previously, he served as chief financial officer of two Nasdaq publicly traded companies.

In July 2007, Sordello joined LinkedIn from TiVo, where he was part of the management team that delivered TiVo's first-ever quarter of profitability.

Prior to that, he was CFO for Ask Jeeves and helped lead the company through a transition from unprofitable back to a profitable, high-margin company. During his tenure there, revenues and earnings grew significantly, and the company's market value increased from less than $40 million to more than $2 billion when it was acquired by IAC/Interactive Corporation in 2005. Sordello has also held senior finance roles at Adobe Systems and Syntex Corporation (acquired by Roche). He holds an MBA and B.A. from Santa Clara University.
