CommerceHub Founder Returns With An Omni-Channel Focus


By Bob Johns

Frank Poore

Frank Poore had some unfinished business when he returned to the company he founded, and it seems e-commerce is finally catching up to his vision.

Anyone who has been an entrepreneur knows how hard it is to sell the company and move on. Frank Poore found himself when he sold his company, CommerceHub, to Liberty Interactive in 2006.
