Marqeta’s founding CEO Jason Gardner to step aside

Oakland-based Marqeta surprised those on its earnings call this week when founding CEO Jason Gardner said a search is underway for his successor. Gardner will become executive chairman when a new CEO is named. “I am as excited as ever about the massive opportunities ahead for Marqeta and very confident we are on the path to sustainably profitable growth,” said Gardner, who was recognized in 2020 as a San Francisco Business Times Most Admired CEO.
