The RealReal, leader in authenticated luxury consignment, has added Stefan Larsson (former executive at Ralph Lauren, H&M and Gap), James Miller (former executive at Google, Amazon, Cisco and IBM), Niki Leondakis (president of Wolff Resident Experience Company and former CEO of Equinox Fitness Clubs), and Rob Krolik (former CFO of Yelp) to its board.

"Stefan, Jim, Niki and Rob are innovative leaders with expertise spanning retail, technology, customer experience and finance industries," said Julie Wainwright, CEO and board chair of The RealReal. "Each new member is an invaluable addition and will undoubtedly strengthen our board."

Larsson commented, "I'm excited to have joined the RealReal board because I believe it is one of the strongest new innovators in retail and has a unique understanding of where the consumer is going."

"I'm thrilled to bring some experiences and perspectives to the board that will help The RealReal on the next steps of this exciting journey," said Miller.

Leondakis added, "I'm honoured to join the board of such a relevant, well-run company and brand that owns its segment in the market with seemingly unlimited growth potential."

Krolik shared, "I'm excited to join the board of such an impressive company that's built a vibrant luxury resale marketplace and continues to be a leader in the recirculation of goods."

The new independent director appointments will bring the size of The RealReal's board of directors to eight members. In addition to Julie Wainwright, founder and CEO, The RealReal's other directors include Michael Kumin, managing partner at Great Hill Equity Partners; Gilbert L (Chip) Baird, co-founder and partner of PWP Growth Equity; and Maha Ibrahim, general partner of Canaan Partners.
