Jason Goldberger resigns Blue Nile after serving as its CEO for 1.5 years.
Jason will be the third exec to leave his position in the company after its acquisition in 2017. Bain Capital’s Eric Anderson will be serving as the interim CEO – Bain was one of the three firms that acquired the Blue Nile in 2017.
In a statement to GeekWire, Blue Nile said, “Eric Anderson has assumed the role of Interim CEO while we conduct a search for the successor to Jason Goldberger, who has moved on to pursue his next challenge. We are continuing to invest behind our strategic priorities and new capabilities to accelerate growth.”
Goldberger declined to comment when contacted, GeekWire said.
GeekWire continued to report that before heading up the Blue Nile, Goldberger led Target’s e-commerce efforts for nearly four years. He previously was an executive at Gilt.com, Hayneedle, and Amazon, where he spent more than seven years at the Seattle-based tech giant. At the Blue Nile, Goldberger replaced Harvey Kanter, who remains chairman.
Prior to its acquisition, Blue Nile was bringing in about $400 million in revenue per year. In the last year, it cleared $500 million in revenue, reported GeekWire.
