Former StubHub CFO Greg Mrva has joined GoFundMe as the online fundraising platform’s new finance chief to oversee its finance, accounting, business operations and corporate development functions.

Mrva’s oversight will extend to Classy, a fundraising platform for nonprofits that GoFundMe acquired earlier this year.

Mrva will report to CEO Tim Cadogan, who praised his “focus and experience.” Cadogan added that those traits will “be invaluable as we scale our business, expand into adjacent markets, and continue to build industry-leading tools to help people help each other.”

Prior to GoFundMe, Mrva was the President of TPG Pace Tech Opportunities, a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), where he helped lead the merger that took online learning platform Nerdy public in September 2021. Before that, he was StubHub’s CFO and served on eBay’s finance leadership team. Mrva has also held leadership positions at Morgan Stanley, Barclays and Yahoo.

Speaking about Mrva’s experience, Cadogan said, “Greg’s mix of financial, strategic and operating expertise will be essential as we accelerate growth globally across both GoFundMe and Classy.”

GoFundMe’s platform has been used to raise over $15 billion through 200 million donations since 2010 and shows no signs of slowing down. GoFundMe’s acquisition of Classy, which closed in May 2022, will likely help widen the scope of projects and causes the company will help fund, and will also help bring in new users. Classy and GoFundMe raised a combined $5 billion in 2021.

“GoFundMe is a unique technology company as people rely on the power of its platform and global community during life’s most pressing moments and to provide support to each other during nearly every world event,” said Mrva. “I’m thrilled to join a company that has become a household name for providing a trusted and efficient way for people to help each other and their communities as well as providing nonprofit organizations with mission critical software to unlock giving.”

Mrva isn’t the only fresh face at GoFundMe. Last month, the platform brought on Margaret Richardson, a former Apple and Airbnb executive, as its Chief Corporate Affairs Officer.
