In its second-largest acquisition, Amazon buys the company for $970 million.
Jerry Lewis worked with the outdoor gear retailer in his previous job at vendor CrossView.
Outdoor gear retailer Moosejaw Mountaineering has hired a new vice president of technology. Jerry Lewis comes to the online retailer from CrossView Inc., an e-commerce services provider.
At CrossView, Lewis was vice president of ProAAMS managed services. Moosejaw says it worked closely with Lewis and his former company on multichannel e-commerce projects.
“It was completely logical move for Jerry to join the Moosejaw team,” says Harvey Kanter, the retailer’s CEO. “We couldn’t be happier to have acquired such a talented individual.”
Lewis began consulting for Web Emporium, a web design firm, in 1998. In 2002, Lewis took over as senior vice president of technology for Telecom Asset Management. He joined CrossView in 2006.
“It's very exciting to be part of Moosejaw,” Lewis says. “Their culture and values are exactly aligned with what I’m all about.”
