In spring 2007, Kevin Ryan recognized a market opportunity to start online flash sales in the United States and introduce consumers to an ecommerce experience. The core founding team was Mike Bryzek and Phong Nguyen. Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, friends and New York City designer Sample Sale shoppers, were next to join the team. Alexis, with a background in E Commerce at EBay and AOL, and Alexandra, with a background in luxury goods from Bulgari and Louis Vuitton, set out to build the rest of the Gilt team. The team tries to get designer brands and services to be featured on Gilt.com. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilt_Groupe
