Although online fashion is a far cry from the property market, Darling’s skills in leading tech companies in legal matters is the common denominator here.
Darling comes to Stitch Fix with more than 18 years of corporate legal experience in Silicon Valley, having served as the chief legal officer at several technology companies. Most notably, Darling previously served as the General Counsel of Trulia, Inc., the residential real estate site, during its period of rapid growth where he helped lead Trulia's initial public offering and subsequent $2.5B sale to Zillow, Inc.
Katrina Lake, founder and CEO of Stitch Fix, says Darling's appointment is a win for the business.
"Scott brings an incredible range of experience to the team having helped technology companies through high growth periods and major business milestones. His expertise is a great match for Stitch Fix as we continue to grow and expand our business into new categories."
"Stitch Fix is doing such an amazing job transforming the consumer retail experience," said Darling. "I'm excited to join an exceptional team and such an innovative company."
