Celebrating a Blockbuster 2020 + Expanded C-Suite

New year-end data & exec hires mark an incredible year of growth for Cameo

📈 2020 #Business

This year, we did approximately $100M in GMV, growing at a rate of over 4.5x YoY, with average order value increasing by ~25% to roughly $70. In May of 2020, we celebrated a company milestone — our millionth Cameo. And in 2020 alone, we fulfilled more Cameos than throughout our company’s 4-year history: roughly 1.3M total. With bookings growing by more than 350% YoY, the demand for Cameo has never been greater.

🌐 Growing Remotely…Forever

On March 11th, just hours before the deadline to sign a 10-year lease for our new HQ in Chicago’s West Loop, Cameo leadership made the calculated decision to hold off. And after three successful months working as a fully distributed workforce, we made the decision permanent — allowing us to end our reliance on the traditional headquarters model, attract the best talent for Cameo, and shape the perfect team, regardless of their location.
