Envision Horizons was originally founded in January of 2017 by Laura Meyer, a former Amazon employee who saw first-hand the many challenges that retail brands face when selling on Amazon. Laura noticed that brands not only struggle with advertising and strategy, but Amazon’s Seller Central backend makes it difficult to analyze success on the platform. As a result, former Wall Street analyst and computer scientist, Lindsey Gorman, quickly joined Laura to lead the company’s software development.
When Walmart Media Group launched Walmart’s self-service advertising platform in late 2019, the team expanded their services beyond Amazon. Today, the team is made up of talented account managers, sales analysts, software engineers, and graphic designers with extensive knowledge and experience with Amazon and Walmart’s search algorithms. They now work with some of the largest brands on Amazon and Walmart and maintain long-standing partnerships with brands in their original client portfolio. Their core services, including SEO, product detail page optimization, advertising strategy, and inventory planning, provide clients with strong foundations and thriving e-commerce businesses that continue to grow year over year.
Chief Executive Officer
Laura is an industry expert with over 20 years of experience in retail. She began her career in sales and customer service, where she learned the importance of constantly evolving to meet consumer expectations. In 2014, she landed a job with Amazon’s Media group where she worked with the grocery, kitchen, and mobile app user acquisition teams. While at Amazon, she noticed the many challenges that brands face while selling on third-party marketplaces, and it was then that the concept of Envision Horizons originated. Today, Laura and her team manage top beauty, fashion, and wellness brands on Amazon and Walmart, and will launch a stand-alone software solution in 2021.
