Walmart names new Jet.com president

By Deena M. Amato-McCoy - 03/26/2018
Walmart’s e-commerce arm has a new leader.

Simon Belsham has been appointed president of Jet.com. He will report directly to Marc Lore, CEO of Walmart’s U.S. e-commerce division (and founder of jet.com) effective Monday, March 26.

In his new role, he will oversee the full scope of operations for the Jet.com business, including driving an integrated customer experience with grocery and general merchandise. He will be based in Hoboken, N.J.

Prior to joining the e-commerce website, Belsham was CEO of venture-backed Notonthehighstreet.com, a curated gifting platform. He also spent seven years at Tesco, leading their grocery online transformation from “tablet to table” across the U.K. and 10 markets across Central Europe and Asia. Belsham also built a general merchandise platform for Ocado, a U.K.-based innovator in online grocery.

“His omnichannel experience and track record of innovation from his time in consumables and durables will help spearhead Jet’s focus to be the leading online retailer for the urban consumers,” Lore said. “With Jet grocery being an integral part of the strategy, Simon brings incredible experience in scaling grocery delivery, and his unique background in converging technology and retail to create amazing experiences for customers.”
