I’m thrilled to announce that I have just joined skinnyCorp / Threadless as CEO. skinnyCorp operates several online communities, the largest of which is Threadless, a community-based t-shirt company with an ongoing open-call for design submissions. Essentially, designers from around the world submit designs which are rated by the large and active Threadless community. The weekly winners are paid a cash prize and their designs are printed onto t-shirts which the company sells. Founded in 2000, Threadless has been growing rapidly and is the original and leading player in this space. Also, just recently, the company launched Threadless Kids.
I am excited to be working again in an entrepreneurial, consumer-focused company that bridges the creative world and the web world. I’m particularly happy that it’s one with such a vibrant and passionate community. I am looking forward to collaborating closely with Jake Nickell (founder/CSO), Jeffrey Kalmikoff (CCO), Harper Reed (CTO), and the rest of the extremely talented team.
Jake posted the anouncement on the Threadless blog earlier today. It’s a great welcome to begin what I expect will be a tremendously rewarding, fun, and successful partnership.
