Swan Led A Startup That Failed During The Dot-Com Bubble

After leaving General Electric in 1999, Swan joined online grocery startup Webvan, which CNET has called one of the largest dot-com flops in history.

Swan, who had joined in 1999 as vice president and also served as chief operating officer, was appointed CEO in April 2001 after his successor resigned. The company, which went public in 1999 after raising hundreds of millions of dollars from investors, filed for bankruptcy and shut down in 2001.
