GOAT Hires First Female COO, Lizzie Francis

Date: June 21 2018

By: Audrey Bugeja


The world's largest sneaker marketplace, GOAT, has hired their first female COO — Lizzie Francis — in a shift for the giant retailer.

This move has been noted as a strategic one for GOAT, who are flipping the script on what is often seen as the traditional attitude of a culture towards women shoppers. 

Francis’ appointment comes after GOAT’s acquisition of Flight Club and $60 million in new funding, which sees them chase the female market by making the shopping experience more friendly, attractive and seamless. 

As the diversity game continues, we see brands evolve to help (finally and thankfully) tighten the gap. We have a long way to go, but here’s a start.
