The Dollar Shave Club (DSC) is appointing Jason Goldberger as its new CEO effective January 19. The announcement comes as Michael Dubin, the founder and current CEO of the company, is stepping down.
Dubin will remain at the company as a special adviser and board member, according to the company.
“When Michael approached the Board with his intent to transition after a decade of leading the company, we collectively agreed we wouldn’t proceed until both the right candidate came forward and the business was poised for breakout expansion into omnichannel,” said Sunny Jain, President of Unilever Beauty & Personal Care global. “Today, we are there. Jason is a proven leader and experienced CEO who has demonstrated a strong track record leading brands and driving growth and the business is on an exciting upward trajectory. I couldn’t be more confident in the future of Dollar Shave Club than I am right now,”
As part of the Unilever family, Goldberger will report to Fabian Garcia, President Unilever North America, and will focus on the organization’s beauty & personal care side.
Prior to joining DSC, Goldberger was CEO of kitchen retailer Sur La Table for roughly a year, where he helped the company emerge through bankruptcy. And before Sur La Table, Goldberger was President and CEO at Blue Nile. He has also held leadership positions at Target, Gilt and Amazon.
When asked about his transition, Dubin said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to pass the torch to Jason. His experience, professionalism and leadership is second to none. Heck, he may even look good in the commercials. Leading DSC has been the ride of a lifetime. I’m filled with gratitude for the myriad of people who have helped make this such a special place and brand, and I’m excited to stay involved.”
