Alex Back, CEO & Founder

When I was 26, I founded the e-commerce startup Apt2B, an exciting home furnishings brand catered to modern living. During the tail end of the (last) recession, there was a gap in the industry for affordable home furnishings in larger cities and virtually no online presence for great looking sofas, beds and home decor. My friend and business partner, Mat, and I seized the opportunity and began riding the incredible wave that was the last 13 years.

After seeing the company through an acquisition in 2018 and exiting my post as C.O.O. in 2023, I took some time to really think about my next move. When I found out that the website Couch.com was available for a sum that was larger than my kids' college fund I laughed it off. But as I thought about it further I realized that this opportunity was actually a perfect fit for me- I'm not sure there is anyone else better suited to bring the experience, fun and dad joke cheese factor to Couch.com!

My dream was to create a platform that actually helps people find great furniture. Lucky for me no one has an f'ing clue where to buy a new couch! Not even those of us in the industry, to be honest. We're currently building a platform that attempts to solve that problem - think of us as the Match.com of couches!

    Jonathan Wilson

    In 2005 I got a job as a furniture salesman. In 2007 I began to perceive it as a career. In 2011 I was promoted to the upholstery buying team at one of the largest furniture retailers in the country. I've trained managers, stagers, decorators, and more... but above all, salesman. To date, I've probably given around 5,000 sales meetings. I helped build and stage 200,000 square foot stores. Once, I led a team of fifty as we staged over 50,000 square feet with upholstery sets, rugs, accessories and all, in around 8 hours the day before Grand Opening Labor Day Weekend... with zero prep. The story is as ridiculous as it sounds, I'd love to tell you about it. Later, I joined up with Jackson/Catnapper to serve the Colorado and Arizona regions as a factory representative. I really wanted to learn the manufacturing side of the business, combine my retail skills, and serve the entire industry as a better rep. In my four+ years with Jackson Furniture Industries, my sales grew from $12MM to over $30MM dollars annually. I empowered thousands of salespeople to best represent the brand. Their confidence in their product was evident in the tremendous sales growth. Today, I'm still serving the furniture industry as the VP of Strategic Partner Success at Legends Home in Phoenix, AZ.
