- Overview: Founder, RevZilla.com, Board Director, Comoto Holdings
Anthony's career, previous to founding RevZilla.com, focused on retail and consumer brands' eCommerce experiences, tech platforms and digital marketing strategies. Anthony has been involved in all facets of online retail with companies ranging from small enterprises to large blue chip brands such as Smashbox Cosmetics, Vineyard Vines, Oneida, Spencer Gifts, Chrome Hearts and L.L. Bean among others.
In 2007 Anthony left his position as Director of Business Development at the eCommerce agency WebLinc to launch RevZilla.com, an online destination for motorcycle apparel, accessories and parts focusing on customer experience. Bootstrapped by Anthony and his co-founders for the first eight years, and $100M+ in yearly revenue, RevZilla.com succeeded in disrupting the 20+ billion dollar motorcycle industry with a new-school approach to an old-school customer. The RevZilla experience is powered by internally developed technology that supports all eCommerce, media, ERP and fulfillment functions providing the core competitive advantage.
RevZilla has received multiple best workplace recognitions for Pennsylvania and Philadelphia including The Philadelphia Inquirer’s #1 Top Workplace in 2015. Nationally, 2015 also saw the company named to Fortune’s 20 Best Workplaces in Retail where they came in 5th, beating retail icons like Zappos, LL Bean, and REI.
2016 saw another milestone with Anthony and the founding partners of RevZilla joining forces with private equity firm J.W. Childs to create Comoto Holdings. This new entity is the largest retail motorcycle apparel and accessories group in the world, pairing RevZilla with Cycle Gear’s 115 retail locations to lead both the online and offline channels.
While Anthony stepped out of day-to-day operations in early 2017, he remains a fixture on the Comoto Board and within RevZilla’s branded and fast growing media and original content ecosystem which is deployed internationally on YouTube, RevZilla.com and other internet channels. His product videos, curating the best of what the motorcycle industry has to offer, have been watched over 100 million times.
Anthony has been named to the list of top 40 Under 40 Business People in the Philadelphia Region as well as the 40 under 40 list for Drexel University. He was also Drexel University’s Alumni Entrepreneur of the Year along with the 2016 College of Computer Science and Information Commencement Speaker. In 2014 he was an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award recipient.
Anthony is a native of the Philadelphia region and has actively lived and worked in the city for the past 18 years. When he is not working or spending time with his wife Tara and his five children, he likes to play golf, ride his motorcycle and “shred” the RevZilla half pipe.
Anthony is a software developer turned entrepreneur, and the co-founder and former CEO of RevZilla.com, the largest online retailer in the motorcycle industry.
