ShoppersChoice.com LLC has a new president and a new CEO.
The online retailer, No. 374 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, says that Michael Hackley has moved from CEO to president. Taking his place is Corey Tisdale, the company’s 11-year chief operating officer.
“Corey Tisdale has been my right hand man since the company started and I have the utmost confidence he will take the company to new levels,” says Hackley, who has worked with Tisdale since 2000.
The mass merchandiser’s annual sales reached $20.1 million in 2009, up 13% from the year before.
“We are at a transitional point at ShoppersChoice.com. We are a fundamentally solid company, with no long-term debt, in a tremendous position for growth,” says Tisdale. “We’ve grown every single year and put money in the bank every single month for the past decade, and I plan on continuing that trend.”
The company also said executive project manager Susan Nelson will replace Tisdale as chief operating officer. Additionally, ShoppersChoice.com named director of marketing Jason Stutes as chief marketing officer.
