Nasty Gal Founder Hands Over CEO Role
Sophia Amoruso will always be the #GirlBoss. But she's giving up the official boss title at Nasty Gal. Amoruso, founder of the Los Angeles-based online fashion retailer and author of a best-selling advice book titled "#GirlBoss," is stepping down as CEO of the company that she nurtured from a side project on eBay nine years ago into an e-commerce powerhouse, she told her staff yesterday. Sheree Waterson, who has been Nasty Gal's president, has been named as the new CEO and is also joining the company's board alongside Amoruso and Index Ventures partner Danny Rimer.
