Amy Bohutinsky, Dawn Lepore, and Michelle Wilson

Posted March 25, 2015


Getting a board seat isn’t just about adding value, but also about what value you take from it for your career. But why do it? When? How? And should you focus on a public or private company?

To answer these questions and share their perspectives, this segment of the a16z Podcast features three current board directors and veteran executives: Amy Bohutinsky, CMO of the Zillow Group and a board director at Hotel Tonight and Avvo; Dawn Lepore, former Chair and CEO of Drugstore.com and a board director at AOL, Real Networks, and Coupons.com; and Michelle Wilson, former Amazon general counsel and a board member at Zendesk.
