Jeff Housenbold

“Focus, Culture and Vision”

4/14/15 - When friends at eBay told him not to leave his job as vice president of business development and Internet marketing to join Shutterfly, Jeff Housenbold ignored them. Since then, Housenbold has grown the custom image publishing service from $50 million in 2005 to $1.1 billion this year in sales.

Housenbold shared his thoughts on driving culture, focusing on a vision and proving the naysayers wrong with Dean Sally Blount ’92 and a packed hall of Kellogg students during the Brave Leader Series.
