Matthew A. Kaness is the CEO of GoodwillFinds, the new social enterprise and ecommerce marketplace that extends Goodwill’s mission of creating social impact through the power of work. Kaness is a seasoned retail veteran with nearly twenty years of experience leading some of the most innovative and well-loved brands in the Direct-to-Consumer, Digital Commerce, and Fashion Retail industries, including Walmart eCommerce, URBN (Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People + Nuuly), ModCloth and Afterpay.

Over his career, Kaness has spearheaded innovations that have catapulted brands to the next level, including overseeing the transformation of ModCloth from a pure-play fashion e-tailer to a digitally-native omni channel brand, resulting in acquisition by Walmart, as well as leading the strategic development of the eCommerce channel at URBN to $1B in revenue, and advising Afterpay through its successful entry into the U.S. market.

Under Kaness’ leadership, GoodwillFinds launched in October 2022 and quickly expanded from supporting 4 Goodwill regions on the platform to now 14 – representing more than 500 stores across the country – while growing GMV to over $25MM in year one and introducing the Goodwill brand and mission story to millions of online shoppers.
