Alexis Maybank, along with Alexandra Wilkins Wilson and three other cofounders, created Gilt Groupe in 2007, a members-only online-sample-sale juggernaut. Alexis brought her personal passions for online shopping, devotion to New York City designer sample sales, and her background in ecommerce to create a new experience for online shopping: membership to Gilt Groupe provides instant insider access to today’s top designer labels, at up to 60% off retail. Together, the founding team of five created a new way for millions of consumers to shop curated styles, goods and services, all at insider pricing. Today, Gilt Groupe sells over a half billion dollars\’ worth of product.
