In just eight short years Nasty Gal has transformed itself from a startup selling a highly-curated selection of vintage pieces on eBay to a fast-growing international style source offering both new and vintage clothing, shoes and accessories.
At the Retail Executive Summit, Nasty Gal CTO David Thomas will discuss how the company has quickly outgrown expectations and overrun its plans. His presentation will focus on how founder Sophia Amoruso created a good concept that quickly turned into a great one and how the company is handling the unexpected growth and managing the rapid expansion.
Thomas has over 15 years of technology leadership experience at prominent eCommerce and online media brands, including executive positions at Stella & Dot, Evite, The Knot and WeddingChannel.com. From developing and hosting the Macy's online bridal business of hundreds of thousands of SKUs, to rebuilding the leading online events service into the cloud, Thomas has delivered a variety of scalable online solutions in fashion apparel, social communities, events and gifting.
The 13th annual Retail Executive Summit will be held June 18-20, 2014 at the Grand Del Mar in Grand Del Mar, California. The conference features keynotes from retail leaders, peer-to-peer exchanges, relationship building, and the 4th annual CIO of the Year Awards.
