Endeavor has appointed former eBay and PayPal executive Guy Schory as its first chief digital officer, the company announced Wednesday.

In the newly created role, Schory will lead the company’s digital efforts across product management, marketing, data platforms, advertising and commerce. He will also operate Endeavor’s digital direct-to-consumer and business-to-business divisions, including Endeavor Streaming, a recently created video streaming distribution company for live and on-demand sports and entertainment content.

“As Endeavor continues to evolve, our ability to create innovative digital businesses, products and experiences for our clients and platform matters now more than ever,” Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, said. “Guy is a strategic executive who has the experience operating world-class businesses at scale and the expertise required to take us to the next level.”

Schory previously served in several leadership roles at eBay and PayPal, where he led global strategic initiatives focused on scaling capabilities in commerce and payments, including mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships and innovation programs. Since leaving eBay in 2016, Schory has been serving on the board of directors for BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity company, and Timbuk2, a San Francisco-based bag manufacturer.
