Blue Apron has also hired Julie Betancur as chief human resources officer.
‘We are thrilled to be bringing on two incredibly talented, seasoned executives who will be instrumental to our organization as we execute on our recently announced strategy to return the company to year-over-year quarterly growth in 2020,’ Findley Kozlowski says in a statement.
