Former Tesco exec to head up technology for Nordstrom

BY Deena M. Amato-McCoy

Nordstrom has ended its “extensive search” for a new technology chief.

The department store retailer has named Edmond Mesrobian as chief technology officer. He succeeds Kumar Srinivasan, who left his position as Nordstrom’s CTO in January 2017. Srinivasan left Nordstrom after less than a year on the job to return home to India.

Mesrobian joins Nordstrom from U.K.-based supermarket giant Tesco, where he focused on strengthening the company’s technological capabilities and creating innovative solutions for its customers.
Prior to Tesco, he spearheaded operational and technical innovations as CTO of global travel company Expedia, including online travel brands, Expedia.com, Hotels.com, and Hotwire.com.

Mesrobian will support all aspects of technology across Nordstrom. He will focus on advancing the retailer’s suite of technology capabilities to meet the evolving needs of customers.

“After an extensive search, we are excited to have Edmond join our executive team as chief technology officer,” said Blake Nordstrom, co-president of Nordstrom. “Edmond is a seasoned technology expert, and has contributed to the growth of retail, high-tech and internet-based businesses for nearly three decades. As our industry and customers evolve, Edmond will help us continue to transform our business so we can deliver the best experience to our customers, however they choose to shop with us.”
