"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.
