Poshmark adds former Charlotte Russe CEO Jenny Ming to board
today Sep 2, 2019
Prior to joining Poshmark, Ming served as president and CEO of the teen clothing retailer, which continues to rally from bankruptcy, from 2010 through 2019.
In addition, Ming has also held leadership roles at Gap and Barneys New York, and was a leading figure in the launch of Old Navy in 1994. Currently, Ming serves as a member of the board for denim and apparel brand Levi’s, as well as stationery and gift retailer Paper Source.
“We’re incredibly proud of the board we’ve built at Poshmark,” said Manish Chandra, founder and CEO of Poshmark. “Each member contributes a unique perspective that will help us scale our community of shoppers and sellers. Jenny Ming will be instrumental as we continue to diversify our social commerce platform and expand our retail and geographical footprint.”
Ming joins the board as Poshmark continues to experience significant growth, reaching over 50 million users and recently launching into a new home goods category with its ‘Home Market’ segment. In addition, the company recently began to expand internationally, launching in Canada in June.
“Poshmark has built an incredible community of empowered entrepreneurs, stylists and shoppers who represent a new era of online commerce,” Ming said. “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.”
Ming’s appointment brings Poshmark’s board of directors up to seven, including Manish Chandra; Navin Chaddha, managing director at Mayfield; Hans Tung, managing partner at GGV Capital; John Marren, senior managing director, North America at Temasek; Jeff Epstein, former CFO of Oracle and DoubleClick; and businesswoman and tennis star, Serena Williams, who joined the company’s board in February.
