Web SmithFounder, Editor-in-Chief

I believe that insights should be provided through experience, not just observation. That's the basis of analyses that 2PM provides. I was the cofounding CMO of a DTC brand Mizzen + Main, a company that we started with no early, outside capital. It has since earned the investment of L Catterton and is distributed - nationally - through Nordstrom and over one thousand independent retailers. Prior to my time at the menswear brand, I was the "marketing czar" at Rogue - a DTC fitness brand and manufacturer. There, I had the fortune of learning from a few of the best operators in retail. I've since led commerce operations in the digital publishing industry. This experience included time at Uncrate and Gear Patrol. My work has been featured in CNBC, AdWeek, New York Times, Fast Company, Product Hunt, The Wall Street Journal, and Esquire. Over 10% of 2PM's annual revenue is earmarked to help women and men find second-chance employment opportunity. I have a wife (Lindsey) and two daughters (Alexis and Adriana) and I am the fourth best athlete in this house. You can follow me at @Web on Twitter or connect on LinkedIn.
