Jill Ramsey, an experienced ecommerce executive, is joining us as Vice President of Soft Goods, North America from Walmart.com. She will lead merchandising efforts for Fashion, Home & Garden, Collectibles & Art, and Lifestyle & Media.
Jill – who will report to Senior Vice President of North America Hal Lawton -- was previously Vice President of Softlines Merchandising for Walmart.com’s Home & Apparel division, and brings experience that can help extend these critical verticals.
At Walmart, she oversaw divisions of merchants responsible for substantial parts of Walmart.com’s revenues. She also helped launch and evolve several parts of Walmart’s online business, including its gift registry, online pharmacy and tires ecommerce lines.
"We are thrilled Jill is joining the team with her deep expertise in merchandising and evolving commerce sites,” Hal said. “The timing of her arrival couldn't be better as we prepare to enter the busy holiday retail season."
Jill’s interests include home décor and mid-century design, and she is passionate about ecommerce. Her most recent purchase on eBay was a pair of designer shoes, and her most recent sale was another pair of shoes.
Jill has an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Business, and a BA in English from the University of Chicago. She has two sons with her husband Dean Rader, a prize-winning poet and Professor of English at the University of San Francisco.
