Michael Heinstein Board Member
...
In the 1990's Michael Heinstein noticed a fundamental challenge for customers shopping for wall décor - while there were millions of wall décor pieces available for sale around the world, in a strictly bricks-and-mortar world, it was difficult for customers to access many of them. Realizing an opportunity to leverage the growing power of the Internet to improve the wall décor shopping experience, Michael co-founded Art.com Inc. As former Chief Executive Officer and now Chairman of the Board, Michael has made it his personal and corporate goal to make a difference in the world of wall décor and transform how people decorate and collect art.
Michael brings more than two decades of technology and entrepreneurial experience to Art.com Inc. from his work in pre-Internet gaming communities and gaming software. Prior to answering his true entrepreneurial calling, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley. He also has a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Illinois, Chicago, where he practiced as a clinical psychologist and conducted research on the impact of communities on pro-social behavior and mental health.
Michael also serves on the Board of Directors of KidsArt Fairs, an organization that partners with schools and families to inspire children's imagination and to promote lifelong learning through creative expression, while raising funds to support art education initiatives.

AllPosters.com "is a bit like Old Navy or the Gap, while (Art.com) is more like Banana Republic," said AllPosters.com CEO Michael Heinstein.
Heinstein, 37, who founded AllPosters.com in 1998 while he was getting his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at UC-Berkeley, will remain CEO.
Both companies are survivors.Art.com was founded in 1995 and didn't get its first round of venture capital - $30 million - until February, just a month before the merger.AllPosters.com stayed alive during the dot-com crash by keeping costs down - and was rewarded with more than $20 million in financing last year.
The combined firm, which also includes a German subsidiary acquired in March, is expected to reach $80 million in revenue this year and is profitable, said Heinstein.

The combined firm will use the AllPosters.com corporate name but maintain both Web sites and brands, Heinstein said, adding that the company plans to announce growth plans in three months.He declined to comment further.
