Luber stepped down from his role as CEO of StockX just under a year ago, after which the marketplace appointed former eBay senior VP of the Americas and president of StubHub, Scott Cutler, as its new CEO. It was also around this time that StockX was valued at $1 billion.

Speaking to BoF, Luber confirmed that the decision was mutual, saying “It was always my intention from the day I started StockX that I would start another start-up—and then probably after that, another one and another one.”

In an exclusive interview with Highsnobiety last year, Luber outlined StockX’s plans to change the resell game and take it to the next level. Luber identified strategies such as the marketplace’s Initial Product Offerings (IPO), which have proved highly successful over the past year, as important building blocks for the company.

Luber founded StockX in 2015 in partnership with Dan Gilbert, Chris Kaufman, and Greg Schwartz. While StockX was initially a platform to buy and sell deadstock sneakers, its product offering has grown to include apparel, watches, handbags, and accessories.
