Simon is an e-commerce innovator, pioneer and proven business leader. She joined Overstock.com in 2001 during the formative years of e-commerce, when the company’s revenue was less than $20M and employees numbered under 100. She held various key positions, including co-president, and managed various departments, including Business-to-Business, Public Relations, Books, Movies, Music and Games. She was promoted to VP of Branding in 2004 after writing and producing the iconic “Discover the Secret of the Big O” campaign, which contributed to Overstock.com becoming a household name. During her tenure, Overstock became a top 25 e-tailer by traffic and grew to nearly $2B in revenue. Last summer, she stepped down as president of Overstock to explore the emerging American cannabis industry.
