Chewy has named a new marketing head.

The online pet supplies retailer appointed Mark Eamer as chief marketing officer. In the role, he will spearhead the continued expansion of Chewy’s marketing and customer engagement capabilities, with ownership of the company's marketing strategy, partnerships and analytics.

Eamer joins Chewy from Amazon, where he has served as VP of advertising, product and media since 2019. Prior to that, he led the U.S. business of Prime Video.

Eamer first joined Amazon in 2000 as a senior finance analyst, and went on positions of increasing responsibility. He left the company in 2005 to join Zillow, the online real estate company.

Eamer rejoined Amazon in 2009. His broad experience at the company included P&L responsibility for numerous nascent businesses, as well as a prominent role leading product, marketing and personalization for Amazon Local, before ultimately ascending to worldwide VO of the vertical.

"Mark’s extensive experience and track record as a builder, innovator and connector will be instrumental in our continued efforts to advance our marketing capabilities and in achieving our mission of being the most trusted and convenient destination for pet parents and partners, everywhere,” said Sumit Singh, CEO of Chewy. “From guiding emerging business units to transforming existing programs, Mark has displayed an impressive acumen for introducing digital platforms that elevate the customer experience, which remains our north star at Chewy.”
