Scott Lindblom Joins Bed Bath & Beyond as Chief Technology Officer
Scott Lindblom has been named chief technology officer at Bed Bath & Beyond, effective Sept. 28.
Lindblom will report directly to John Hartmann, COO and president of Buybuy Baby, and will lead the No. 34 retailer’s enterprise technology transformation, with responsibility for overseeing the vision and execution of Bed Bath & Beyond's enterprise technology roadmap.
The company recently restructured in order to simplify its operations and support investments for its growth plans, as it evolves operations to meet the new needs of today’s consumers. It also announced a new supply chain chief earlier this month.
Lindblom was most recently executive VP and chief information officer at Michaels, where he was tasked with transforming the IT function of the business into a department that enhanced and streamlined the customer shopping experience. As part of this, his changes contributed to significant revenue impact, according to Bed Bath & Beyond.
He also previously served as group VP of IT at Ross Stores and held senior roles within supply chain management and IT at Best Buy.
Lindblom and Hartmann will work to leverage data, analytics, and agile technology development to create efficiencies, enhance performance, and drive innovation across the organization.
“We are leading an operational and technological transformation to build a more efficient organization and best-in-class omni-always experience for our loyal customers,” said Hartmann. “Scott's track record implementing leading IT solutions and digital fulfillment capabilities for a number of leading retailers will help us accelerate the modernization of our technology infrastructure and capabilities, to rebuild our authority in our core markets and deepen connections and loyalty with our customers."
