Richard Sexton founded Carolina Rustica 17 years ago after a one year trip around the world to celebrate a voluntary departure from the corporate life. Carolina Rustica is now a nationally-recognized omni-channel retailer of high end furniture which embraces online technology and consumer trends to grow its customer base. The company also maintains a large showroom in Concord, NC. In 2012, the company was sold to Mattress USA, based in Brighton, MI, and Richard continued in his role as President until this year. He continues to advise Mattress USA and a host of other e-commerce companies, and is passionate about digital marketing.
Richard has his MBA from Kellogg at Northwestern University with concentrations in Marketing and Economics and is a frequent presence at e-commerce and industry events. This is his fourth speaking engagement with eTail.
