Wenig holds a BA degree from Union College and a JD degree from Columbia University School of Law.


Aged 23, and following his father's unexpected death, Wenig took over as CEO of then-struggling Nastech Pharmaceutical, raising $5 million in venture capital. After a year, he recruited a professional manager and joined the law firm Cravath Swaine & Moore.

In 1993, Wenig joined Reuters, where he remained until 2011, becoming the company's No. 2 executive. From June 2006 to April 2008, Wenig was COO and a board member of Reuters Group plc. From April 2008 to August 2011, Wenig was CEO of Thomson Reuters Markets, the largest division of Thomson Reuters Inc.

Wenig joined as president of eBay's Global eBay Marketplaces Business Unit on 6 September 2011. When Wenig joined eBay, it had 99 million active users. During his time as marketplace chief, this rose to nearly 160 million, by focusing on "m-commerce", shopping on mobile devices. In October 2014, it was announced that once the eBay/PayPal demerger was complete, Wenig would become CEO of eBay, replacing John Donahoe. Wenig took over as CEO in July 2015 after eBay spun off PayPal.

Personal life

On 28 March 1993, Wenig married Cindy Lee Horowitz, a lawyer, and fellow graduate of Columbia University School of Law. Rabbi Jack Bemporad officiated at the Huntington (Long Island) Jewish Center.
