Online jewelry retailer Blue Nile Inc. said this week that chief financial officer Marc Stolzman will resign to pursue other interests, effective Wednesday.

“As we move into the holiday season, we believe we are well positioned to provide our customers with the highest quality products and an exceptional shopping experience,” says CEO Diane Irvine. “Vijay will be an excellent partner as we pursue our mission of building an iconic global brand.”
Talwar joined Blue Nile in August. He previously worked as CEO of the William J. Clinton Foundation in India, helping to develop health care programs in Asia. He also worked at Nike Inc., No. 48 in the Top 500 Guide. One of his jobs was chief operating officer for Nike’s operations in Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
