From the University's news release:
Steve Sordello is currently Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at LinkedIn, where he oversees finance, business operations, facilities and corporate development.  Sordello joined LinkedIn in July 2007 and helped the company grow from $32 million in revenues in 2007 to over $1 billion in revenues in 2013 and go public as the first major publicly traded social-media company. Prior to LinkedIn, Sordello served as CFO of two Nasdaq publicly traded companies. Sordello was CFO at 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 to a profitable, high-margin company. During his tenure there, revenue 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 in 2005. Sordello also has held senior finance roles at Adobe Systems and Syntex (acquired by Roche). He holds an MBA and B.A. from Santa Clara University.

He is joined by two other SCU alums, Rachel Manfre '09 and Rich Haughey '72, who will each serve 3-year terms.
