Henry Davis, President/COO, Glossier

More specifically, this "commerce guy" is President/COO of Glossier – a direct-to-consumer enterprise that he describes as "a digitally-native beauty brand that leverages the convergence of content, commerce, and community to power a superior ecommerce experience."

Three years ago, Davis walked away after eight years as a venture capitalist to "oversee, build and help scale Glossier's marketing, tech, finance, product operations, logistics and international teams to successfully launch and sell over 25 products across three countries."
