Barnes & Noble finds a new e-commerce executive at eBay

The retailer has named Jamie Iannone executive vice president, shopping, for Barnes & Noble.com and Barnes & Noble Digital. Iannone most recently was vice president of global search at eBay.

Multichannel book retailer Barnes & Noble Inc. has named Jamie Iannone executive vice president, shopping, for Barnes & Noble.com and Barnes & Noble Digital. He will report to William Lynch, president of Barnes & Noble.com.

In that role, he will be responsible for meeting the buying needs and shaping the shopping decisions of the company’s online customers, and optimizing the shopping experience at the retailer’s web site, BN.com, the company says.
