Ex-Steve Madden CEO Jamie Karson joins as COO of Shoptiques

An online marketplace Shoptiques.com has announced that former CEO of Steve Madden, Jamie Karson has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer. The company added that during Karson's long-term tenure at Steve Madden, the company's market cap reached 1 billion dollars and consistently delivered yearly sales and profit growth.

Commenting on the development, Founder and CEO, Olga Vidisheva said in a statement: "We're very excited about the next chapter in the Shoptiques growth story. To be successful, you need to have an amazing team and best-in-class product. Jamie Karson joining us as COO helps us scale the business much faster and with the addition of SPOS, we are proud to be offering small boutiques best-in-class tools to be successful and compete with large giants like Amazon and Macy's."

Shoptiques also added a new product to its roster, a comprehensive “Point of Sales Solution” (SPOS) featuring boutique-centric inventory management, employee management, clientele and customer management, and reporting. Shoptiques offers boutiques access to its over one million shoppers through online platform, email marketing services, website-hosting services and now a Point of Sale solution.

"Shoptiques currently features over 6,500 boutiques on its marketplace. Over and over again, boutiques were asking the team to help beyond online - with their in-store operations. So over the past two years, Shoptiques developed a proprietary POS solution that helps small boutiques run their business in-store and online. With this new product, Shoptiques is well-positioned to give Shopify run for its money," added Karson.
