PLANTATION, FLA. — On July 20, e-commerce pet retail giant Chewy announced that its Chief Financial Officer Mario Marte will retire from the company effective July 28.

Marte has been with Chewy since 2015, serving as vice president and later moving up to chief financial officer in 2018. He currently serves as a member of Best Buy’s board of directors.

“I want to thank Mario for his many years of service to Chewy and for the role he played in steering Chewy’s growth and margin expansion over the course of his tenure,” said Sumit Singh, chief executive officer of Chewy. “We wish him well as he takes some much-deserved time with his family.”

Stacy Bowman, chief accounting officer, will serve as interim CFO while Chewy searches for a permanent replacement. Bowman joined Chewy in 2015 and, prior to that, held several senior accounting roles at Brightstar, Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“Stacy is a respected leader who has worked alongside Mario over his tenure, and she is well-positioned to assist through a seamless transition,” Singh said.
