Wine.com Appoints zulily Executive, Kevin Saliba, to Board of Directors

 
 

SAN FRANCISCO, May 16, 2018 - Wine.com, the nation’s leading online wine retailer, today announced the appointment of Kevin Saliba to its board of directors.


With more than fifteen years of experience in eCommerce, 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 in bringing together the best in commerce, content, and media & entertainment and is focused on redefining the next generation of shopping.


Since Saliba stepped into the head of marketing role, zulily has seen record-breaking active customer growth, including the launch of successful customer experience programs.


“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.”


“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.
