Etsy had a tumultuous 2017, but former board member and recently appointed CEO Josh Silverman seems to have helped the business regain its footing.

After its first major round of layoffs, Etsy’s revenue and stock price are up. Gross merchandise sales have been on the rise, too, breaking $US1 billion for the first time in the company’s history in Q4 2017, according to Etsy’s earnings release.

Silverman, who took the reins as CEO in May 2017, will be on the IGNITION stage discussing how the company is transforming the global e-commerce marketplace, key growth drivers such as mobile and enhanced search functionality, and how Etsy is keeping pace with rival storefronts like Amazon Handmade.
