A deal for Build.com to acquire web-only small appliances merchant Living Direct has been in active negotiation, sources tell Internet Retailer.
Maryssa Miller is now the vendor’s vice president of e-commerce.
Miller will oversee support for clients’ implementations of CreateThe Group’s e-commerce platform.
“Maryssa is a strategic addition to our team, as she has deep experience implementing e-commerce platforms and building online businesses for leading retail brands,” says James Gardner, CreateThe Group’s founder and CEO.
Prior to Lacoste, Miller worked as senior manager of e-commerce at Scholastic Inc. She has worked for Simon & Schuster and 1-800-Flowers.com Inc.
“What’s most exciting about this opportunity is the ability to have more of an impact by helping to build an e-commerce business for more than one company at a time,” says Miller.
