Zurb Soapbox with One Kings Lane

1/18/2013 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

When Doug Mack was 12 years old, he worked for free at a local computer store in his hometown just so he could gain experience. He learned the ins and outs of salesmanship, really studying the features of the products he was selling. Doug applied that same tenacity throughout his career, from co-founding Scene7, being an executive at Adobe to becoming CEO of One Kings Lane.

Doug studied the online home furnishing retailer closely before becoming its CEO in 2010. He used it as a customer, getting to know how to make purchases and really delving into the customer service. That research proved useful when he actually took the job.

In a few short years, Doug took the company from $25 million in sales a year to $200 million. He’s also managed to snag some impressive talent from other companies, such as Amazon. He’s even brought on board Jean Sini, a veteran in mobile tech, to be the company’s chief product officer.

On Friday, January 18, 2013, Doug will get on his soapbox to tell us about the challenges faced in exceeding e-commerce expectations in the home decor space and keeping the company ahead of its competition. He'll also speak on how the company is working to meet the growing demand of the mobile shopper.
