Retail veteran joins Wine.com board
The nation's leading online wine retailer has added e-commerce heft to its board.
Wine.com has appointed Kevin Saliba to its board of directors. With more than 15 years of experience in e-commerce, Saliba currently serves as Senior Vice President of Marketing at online retailer zulily, a wholly owned subsidiary of Qurate Retail, Inc. Saliba leads the marketing team and is focused on redefining the next generation of shopping.
"Kevin has deep experience in eCommerce and knows how to scale online retailers," said Rich Bergsund, CEO of Wine.com. "The timing is perfect, as we look to continue our accelerated growth and build a very large business in the online wine sector."
Since Saliba stepped into the chief marketing role, zulily has seen record-breaking active customer growth, including the launch of successful customer experience programs.
"I'm extremely excited to be joining the Wine.com Board of Directors," said Saliba. "Having worked with two high-growth companies during major inflection points -- Expedia and zulily -- I see a similar opportunity at Wine.com. My goal is to be a strategic advisor to the management team as Wine.com continues to scale and innovate, build its team, and focus on driving customer acquisition and marketing."
Prior to zulily, Saliba served as Vice President of Business Development for CafePress.com, where he developed strategic initiatives and partnerships that helped take the company public in 2012. Additionally, Saliba has led business development teams and strategic partnerships at Expedia and Amazon. Kevin Saliba has an Engineering degree from the University of Waterloo and an MBA from Cornell University.
