Joshua Eliot "Josh" Luber (born February 18, 1978) is an American entrepreneur and sneaker collector who co-founded StockX, the stock market for things. Luber worked for IBM when he founded Campless, a "sneakerhead data" company that tracked the secondary market for sneaker sales.[video 1] Campless then morphed into StockX, which is an online marketplace for high-end product resale.
Luber is an expert on the sneaker resale market, and has applied that knowledge to the broader secondary market for luxury goods, a $6 billion global industry. Originally from Philadelphia, Luber is a graduate of Emory University, from which he holds a Bachelors, and MBA, and a law degree.
StockX was jointly founded by Dan Gilbert, Greg Schwartz, Josh Luber and Chris Kaufman in 2015, with an emphasis on the sneaker resale market. Until mid-2019, Luber was the CEO of StockX. However, he stepped down from that role upon raising a Series C, $110 million round of venture capital funding at a $1 Billion valuation for the company.
Luber lives with his wife and two daughters in Birmingham, Michigan.
