As Chairish advances our mission to be the design world’s indispensable source for exceptional home furnishings and art, we’re adding new voices, experiences, and ideas into the mix. With this in mind, I am beyond excited to announce the addition of Kris Miller to our executive board.
Kris brings over 25 years of unparalleled experience to the team, including her years as Chief Strategy Officer and SVP of eBay, as a Partner and Director at Bain & Company, and as a board member for both Neiman Marcus and Cable One.
I’m also proud that, with Kris’ addition, our board will now be 1/3 female. Overall, Chairish is over 70% female, including our executive leadership team. This is a rare accomplishment in the technology world and one that we intend to continue.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Kris Miller to our board, and look forward to the expertise and experience she’ll bring to the table, particularly in ecommerce and marketplaces,” says Chairish CEO and Co-Founder Gregg Brockway. “As we further scale Chairish, Kris is the perfect addition to our board at exactly the right time.”
With over 4.5 million monthly shoppers and 550,000+ exceptional vintage, antique, contemporary, and made-to-order products, Chairish has grown to become America’s leading online platform for high-end home furnishings. Over the past year, Chairish’s gross revenue has more than doubled. We’re in a unique market position to build upon our record growth by further empowering high-end sellers and design lovers to connect online. And as Kris points out, now is the perfect time to ramp up Chairish’s continued growth.
“Over this past year, as we have all spent more time at home — working, eating, lounging, socializing virtually — the role home furnishings play has become more important than ever,” Kris says. “Design lovers are looking to discover unique home items and the professionals who can help them bring their style to life. Chairish showcases an amazing selection, and I’m honored to help them scale their platform to realize this next phase of growth.”
Kris joined our board as of February 1. Please join me in welcoming her to the Chairish family, and stay tuned here for more updates as we continue to grow and launch exciting new things in 2021!
