MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Coupons.com on Thursday announced the appointment of Dawn Lepore, former chairman and CEO of Drugstore.com, to its board of directors.
“Dawn is a widely admired business leader and e-commerce trail blazer,” Coupons.com founder and CEO Steven Boal said. “Her leadership, expertise in building successful online businesses and experience as a board member of such companies as eBay, Walmart and The New York Times Co. will be a great asset to us as we continue to rapidly grow our business.”
Lepore led Drugstore.com from 2004 until its successful sale to Walgreens in 2011. During her tenure, Lepore repositioned the company to focus on over-the-counter, beauty and vision business segments.
Prior to Drugstore.com, Lepore held leadership positions at Charles Schwab. Lepore currently serves on the board of eBay, and previously served on the boards of Wal-Mart Stores and The New York Times Co. She has been honored by Fortune magazine four times as one of the "50 Most Powerful Women in American Business" by the National Organization for Women at their Aiming High Conference, was named one of Information Week's Chiefs of the Year and was listed as one of the Ten Hottest CIOs by Future Banker magazine.
“Coupons.com is uniquely positioned as it leads the digital transformation of the couponing industry,” Lepore said. “With consumer adoption of digital coupons rapidly growing and more and more brands and retailers shifting an increasingly larger portion of their couponing budgets to digital, the industry is at a tipping point. I am excited to be part of the company at this time of inflection.”
