Shopify Inc. hired Morgan Stanley investment banker Jeff Hoffmeister as its next chief financial officer, almost two months after the Canadian e-commerce giant slashed its workforce.

Hoffmeister, who spent more than two decades in Morgan Stanley’s technology investment banking group, will succeed CFO Amy Shapero when she steps down Oct. 27, the Ottawa-based company said Thursday in a statement.
