Alexandra Wilkis Wilson
GLAMSQUAD, Cofounder & CEO
Gilt Groupe, Cofounder & Strategic Advisor
Wilson first became recognized as an innovative entrepreneur for her role as Cofounder of , one of the first and most successful flash sale sites in the US. Gilt has attracted over 9 million members since its launch in 2007, ships to over 180 countries and sells over 4,000 international brands. She has assumed multiple roles within Gilt and Gilt City during her time with the company, initially as Chief Merchandising Officer, and she continues to act as Strategic Advisor to Gilt.
Her latest venture is , an on-demand beauty service (via app) that brings the hair and makeup artists directly to the client. It’s giving salons a run for their money – and hey, since you can order just about everything else on line, why not, although in this case, we like to think of this as ‘me-commerce.’
