Blue Nile names Jason Goldberger President and CEO
Blue Nile on Thursday announced the appointment of Jason Goldberger as President and Chief Executive Officer, effective June 12, 2017. Goldberger succeeds Harvey Kanter, who will serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
The 45-year-old seasoned merchandising and digital executive brings over 20 years of executive leadership in merchandising, digital innovation, marketing and product management to Blue Nile. Prior to joining the online jeweler, he served as Chief Digital Officer and President of Target.com. Goldberger also worked at Amazon, Gilt, QVC and Hayneedle.
“As the Board and I discussed succession planning, we agreed this is the right time to bring in a new CEO to lead the company’s next phase of growth,” said Kanter. “Jason is an experienced leader with deep ecommerce experience who will work closely with the team to innovate, secure, and further our position as the smartest, easiest, and most pressure-free way for consumers to buy a diamond.”
