RAPAPORT... Blue Nile has appointed Katie Zimmerman as chief merchandising officer, a role that entails overseeing bridal and fashion jewelry.

“Katie brings a unique eye and thoughtful analysis to merchandising,” said CEO Jason Goldberger, to whom Zimmerman will report. “Her skill set is critical to unlocking the sourcing, assortment and sales wins that will further Blue Nile’s position as the industry leader.”

Zimmerman previously worked as vice president of merchandising at Zale Corporation, now a division of Signet Jewelers, beginning her career there as an assistant buyer in 2002.

Zimmerman will relocate from Texas to the Seattle area. She is Blue Nile’s second executive hire in two weeks: Earlier this month, Bill Koefoed joined the company as chief financial officer.
