2020 was a record-breaking year for StockX, a resale site for sneakers, streetwear, collectibles, and electronics.

The company broke even in the third quarter of 2020 and more than doubled its sellers outside the US for the year.

After securing a $275 million Series E funding round in December, StockX closed $255 million in additional funding in April that valued the marketplace at $3.8 billion.

In the past five years, StockX has solidified itself as a leader in sneaker reselling, along with rivals like GOAT and eBay. Sources close to StockX previously told Insider that an initial public offering could be in the works as soon as this year.

As StockX soars to that IPO, Insider highlighted the 26 key leaders and executives driving growth across sectors of the business including operations, supply chain, communications, finance, and product.

“Having strong leaders across your organization is critical, especially during key growth phases in a company’s life cycle,” CEO Scott Cutler told Insider via email.

According to Cutler, who joined the company in 2019 from eBay, StockX looks to hire people with experience at high-growth companies who are self-starters. Many of the leaders represented on the list came to StockX after working at companies such as eBay, Amazon, and Yahoo.

“Our vision for the company is to be the leading global marketplace for consumers of current culture,” Cutler said. “Right now we’re heads down on executing against that vision and remain focused on global expansion, category diversification, and continued technology and innovation — all in the pursuit of creating an unparalleled experience for our customers around the world.”

Here are the 26 leaders pushing StockX to new heights as the platform continues to be a dominant force in the resale space.
