Jonathan Johnson

CEO | Bed, Bath, & Beyond/Overstock

Jonathan Johnson is the CEO of the new Bed Bath & Beyond.
Under his leadership, this iconic consumer brand was brought
back to life online when it was acquired by Overstock.com, a
leading furniture and home furnishings ecommerce retailer. In
August 2023, Johnson rebranded the company under the Bed
Bath & Beyond name.

Johnson, who became CEO of Overstock in 2019, positioned the
company as more than just an ecommerce website – streamlining
its widespread merchandising interests into a concentrated
strategy focused on making dream homes come true for
customers. He has been an integral part of the company’s growth
– from a start-up in 1999 to publicly traded with over $2.5 billion in
sales and approximately 1,000 employees. When the former Bed
Bath & Beyond went bankrupt in 2023, Johnson saw an
opportunity to combine the best aspects of both Overstock and
Bed Bath & Beyond to create a “bigger, better beyond.”
Currently a member of the board of directors, Johnson has held
various positions within Overstock since he joined the company in
2002, including chairman of the board, executive vice chairman,
president, and general counsel. He is also a member of the board
of directors of The J.M. Smucker Co.

From 2016-2021, Johnson served as president of Medici
Ventures, a former subsidiary which invested in blockchain
technology and fintech businesses. In early 2021, under
Johnson’s leadership, Medici’s portfolio companies were
transferred to a limited partnership managed by venture capital
firm Pelion Venture Partners.

Prior to Overstock, Johnson worked for TenFold Corporation,
practiced corporate law in Los Angeles, and served as a judicial
clerk at the Utah Supreme Court. Johnson received a law degree
from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at BYU.
