An executive transition is taking place at Blue Apron, leaving the company to search for a new, permanent Chief Financial Officer. As current CFO Randy Greben prepares to resign from his role and join another company, Blue Apron appointed Mitchell Cohen to serve as interim CFO. The shift in its executive structure will take place October 17, 2022.
With over 30 years of financial, operations, and general business expertise, Cohen is a highly experienced Chief Financial Officer with a wealth of experience across a number of industries as well as public and private organizations, according to a press release.
Cohen will immediately start working with the company to facilitate a smooth transition in partnership with Greben, while a permanent replacement is identified. Spencer Stuart has been tasked with conducting a search for the company’s next Chief Financial Officer.
“Mitch will be an asset to Blue Apron during this transitional period given his extensive public company experience, and understanding of subscription and e-commerce models,” said Linda Findley, President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we continue to balance growth, our planned path to profitability, and managing through inflationary periods, Mitch’s decades of experience can help us continue to execute The Next Course strategy outlined earlier this year.”
In another comment within the press release, Findley also discussed Greben’s departure.
“Randy has played an important role at Blue Apron as we developed our new strategy to pursue growth alongside a path to profitability,” she stated. “I’d like to thank him for his contributions on behalf of everybody at Blue Apron. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”
We wish the best of luck to Blue Apron as it begins this search!
