- Poshmark, a social commerce platform company, announced it added former Charlotte Russe CEO Jenny Ming to its board of directors
Social commerce platform company Poshmark recently announced it appointed Jenny Ming to its board of directors. Ming is the former CEO and president of clothing retail chain Charlotte Russe. Before that, Ming was the president of Old Navy between 1999 and 2006.
Ming is Poshmark’s seventh board of director as she joins Poshmark founder and CEO Manish Chandra, Mayfield managing director Navin Chaddha, GGV Capital managing partner Hans Tung, Temasek’s senior managing director of North America John Marren, Bessemer Venture Partners operating partner and former Oracle CFO Jeff Epstein, and tennis champion Serena Williams.
“We’re incredibly proud of the board we’ve built at Poshmark. Each member contributes a unique perspective that will help us scale our community of shoppers and sellers,” said Chandra. “Jenny Ming will be instrumental as we continue to diversify our social commerce platform and expand our retail and geographical footprint.”
Ming is also on the board of Levi’s and Paper Source. And her addition strengthens Poshmark’s diverse and seasoned roster of deeply informed retail, tech, and innovation leaders. Plus it positions Poshmark to capitalize on momentous business growth and platform expansion.
Ever since Poshmark launched in 2011, Poshmark became a vibrant social shopping community with five million Seller Stylists helping 50 million users discover items from over 75 million listings.
“Poshmark has built an incredible community of empowered entrepreneurs, stylists, and shoppers who represent a new era of online commerce,” added Ming. “This company is at a pivotal moment of growth, and I look forward to working with the entire team to support and foster the company’s vibrant community at scale.”
Poshmark’s recent growth and momentum include the launch of the Home Market — which has propelled the company into a new category beyond fashion and accessories. Recently, Poshmark reached over 50 million users on the platform. And the company was named one of Forbes’ Next Billion Dollar Startups and was named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies List in 2019.
