CEO, Vestiaire Collective
Created by a team of six in 2009, Vestiaire Collective is now the largest authenticated luxury resale platform in the world. The site lists around 900,000 pre-owned fashion items at any given moment and has more than 8 million members in 50 markets around the world. In May this year, it recorded 30% year-on-year growth in the number of products submitted.
To date, it has secured more than €116m (£99.5m) in funding from investors including French label Zadig & Voltaire, publisher Condé Nast International, and finance houses Ventech, Balderton Capital, Idinvest, Eurazeo and Vitruvian.
Max Bittner was appointed as CEO in January and has been tasked with improving user experience, search filters, logistics and presentation.
Vestiaire dipped its toe into the world of bricks-and-mortar retail this year, and opened its first permanent concession at department store Selfridge’s Oxford Street flagship in late October.
