today Nov 14, 2018
As California-based social commerce platform Poshmark pushes forward with accelerated growth, the company announced on Tuesday that it has appointed its first ever chief marketing officer, Puma and American Express alum Steven Tristan Young.
In his new role, Young will be in charge of driving Poshmark’s growth, product and brand marketing, as well as leading its marketing team as the platform moves into its next phase of growth.
Young, who has a BS in economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and is also an alumnus of Harvard Business School, joins Poshmark from GrubHub. During his seven years at the online food-delivery company, Young played a key role in building brand awareness and achieving double-digit year-over-year customer acquisition growth.
Prior to GrubHub, Young served in a number of top marketing roles at Directv, American Express, Puma and Endurance International.
“We're thrilled to welcome Steven, who stood out as a seasoned and passionate marketer with a proven track record of scaling high-growth companies, and we look forward to his leadership and expertise over the coming years,” said Poshmark founder and CEO Manish Chandra in a release.
Young’s appointment comes as Poshmark announces a range of milestones that it has hit as it continues to see rapid growth. The platform now powers a sale every second, $100 million in inventory uploads each week and shipments to 30,000 US zip codes.
The company was also recently named on Forbes’ 2018 New Billion Dollar Startups List.
“Throughout my career, I've been drawn to companies that are changing the status quo and enabling people to follow their dreams and build thriving businesses,” explained Young. “I look forward to bringing my passion for growing communities and empowering entrepreneurs to Poshmark, while also combining the power of brand and data-driven marketing to further propel Poshmark into its next chapter of growth.”
