RAPAPORT... Blue Nile has appointed Sean Kell as CEO, ending its search for a permanent chief executive, the online jewelry retailer said Tuesday. He replaces Eric Anderson, a vice-president at parent company Bain Capital, who filled the position in the interim since January, following the departure of Jason Goldberger.

“As the engagement ring and fine jewelry industries continue to evolve, Sean’s leadership and strategic vision will elevate Blue Nile’s modern approach to becoming our customer’s jeweler for life,” said David Humphrey, a managing director at Bain Capital and a member of the Blue Nile board.

Kell has nearly 20 years’ experience in ecommerce and brand marketing and was previously CEO of A Place for Mom, the largest senior living referral service in the US. He also held leadership positions at Expedia’s Hotels.com and Starbucks. His appointment at Blue Nile takes immediate effect.
