FLYR Labs Appoints Steve Schoch as CFO & COO
Veteran executive from 23andME and Miramax will drive FLYR’s financial and operational strategy and teams
Los Angeles, October 12, 2022: FLYR Labs, the pioneer of The Revenue Operating System®, today announced the appointment of Steven Schoch as its new chief financial officer (CFO), reporting to founder and CEO Alex Mans. Steve will also have expanded responsibility for FLYR’s key operational functions.
“Steve has a proven track record of successfully enabling companies in highly competitive industries to reach their full growth potential,” said Mans. “I’m confident that Steve’s leadership experience and expertise in implementing operational and financial strategies and processes will maximize our growth as we continue to transform the company and revolutionize commercial optimization in the travel and transportation industry.”
Schoch joins FLYR after serving for more than four years as CFO at 23andMe, where he led the company’s 2021 IPO.
“FLYR has a fantastic and talented team and a great leader in Alex, who has an amazing grasp of both the market opportunity and the challenges that lie ahead,” said Schoch. “I’ve always striven to be a growth-enabling executive, and I’m excited to join FLYR at such an exciting time of growth. I relish the opportunity to contribute to the company’s accelerating momentum.”
Prior to 23andMe, Schoch served as CEO of Miramax Films for five years while concurrently serving as CFO, a position he had held since 2010. During this period, Miramax built its distribution reach to 200 countries, relaunching its original content film and television development, production, and distribution capabilities and becoming one of the largest content providers for streaming services such as Netflix.
Before joining Miramax, Steve held various senior financial roles at biopharmaceutical company Amgen, Inc., including Corporate Controller and divisional CFO, helping steward annual revenue growth from $3 billion to more than $15 billion in less than 10 years. Prior to that, he was executive vice president and CFO at eToys, Inc., a pioneering internet retailer of children’s products, where he led the company’s IPO, with an initial $8 billion market value.
With a variety of financial positions in quick-growth companies, Steve will help FLYR further accelerate its near- and long-term goals to help travel and transportation leaders overcome the challenges of an ever-changing business environment.
