Alexandra Wilson and Alexis Maybank.
Do you know these names? If not, you should. They are the founders of Gilt Groupe, the luxury fashion eCommerce site whose exponential growth is the stuff of dreams.
This Forbes article outlines their success and I couldn’t help but notice this stagering statistic:
“Since its inception, the company has grown from five employees to 411 and expanded to include other verticals like Gilt Men and Jetsetter. Revenue for the company last year was $170 million, and is expected to be between $400-500 million this year.”
I think it’s safe to say that these women and their site are a model for luxury eCommerce success.
Looking forward to hearing more stories like theirs at the Luxury Interactive event in NYC next week and in weeks to come.
