Poshmark (NASDAQ: POSH), a c-to-c fashion marketplace based in California, has appointed William Ingham as its first Chief People Officer. Ingham is responsible for leading the company’s global human resources operation, which includes talent acquisition and retention, employee training and culture, and organizational development.
Ingham (LinkedIn profile) has over 25 years of HR experience, including three years as the Head of International HR for Banana Republic, which is owned by Gap, Inc. His experience also includes serving as Head of Global HR for several divisions of Clorox, and most recently as Visa Europe’s chief HR officer.
In February, Poshmark launched in Australia, its first step out of North America. Given Ingham’s significant experience in international HR and Poshmark’s recent IPO, the company appears to be in a strong position for global expansion.
“We are at an important inflection point in our company’s history, and I look forward to partnering closely with William to fuel Poshmark’s high-performance culture, reinforce the values we stand for, and scale our teams to power our next phase of growth,” said Poshmark’s founder and CEO, Manish Chandra, in a news release announcing Ingham’s appointment.
“One of the ways that I’ve found to focus on being authentic is to truly take care of myself first, and I do that by making sure that I accept myself, that I appreciate myself, that I give myself attention, and most of all that I allow myself to be the authentic person that I am,” Ingham has said.
In addition to Ingram’s appointment, Poshmark is also looking for directors of International Expansion to grow Poshmark Canada and launch Poshmark U.K.
Poshmark recently released its yearly and Q4 financial results for 2020. While revenue rose 27% year-on-year, share prices have fallen to $46.37 (closing price on March 16, 2021), almost half its impressive opening at $97.50 per share.
