|Mark Vadon, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. Our management team is led by Mark Vadon, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Vadon co-founded Zulily, a consumer internet retailer of products targeting moms, babies and children, and served as Chairman of the board from 2009 until September 2015. We believe that Zulily’s revenue growth was one of the fastest in the internet retail sector at that time, achieving over $1 billion in annual revenues less than five years from inception. Since inception, Zulily has generated over $11 billion in revenue. Mr. Vadon also co-founded Blue Nile, a consumer internet retailer of diamonds and fine jewelry, and served as Chairman of the board from 1999 to 2013 and Chief Executive Officer from 1999 to 2008. From its inception until it was acquired by Bain Capital in 2017, Blue Nile generated approximately $5 billion in revenue. Prior to co-founding Blue Nile, Mr. Vadon was a consultant for Bain & Company, a management consulting firm, which he joined in 1992. Mr. Vadon has been actively investing in and advising consumer internet businesses since 2007. Mr. Vadon served as Chairman of the board of Chewy from 2014 to 2017, and advised and invested in private rounds of companies such as Allbirds, Crowd Cow, FlyHomes, Outdoor Voices, The Pill Club Medical Group, Rad Power Bikes, Sweetgreen, Thrive Market, Trupanion, Course Hero, New Engen and Wine.com. In addition to his privately held company boards, Mr. Vadon has served on the board of Qurate Retail Group since 2015 and previously served on the board of Home Depot from 2012 to 2019. Mr. Vadon holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Stanford University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Studies from Harvard University. Mr. Vadon is responsible for Big Sky’s investment strategy and has relationships with an extensive network of founders, management teams, investors and advisors. We believe his reputation as a successful investor and track record of building, advising and supporting management teams in high growth consumer market segments will differentiate us as we identify and negotiate an initial business combination with potential partners.||Lauren Neiswender, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Legal Officer and Director.
