Instacart Adds Chief Revenue Officer from Amazon
Instacart has hired ad sales veteran Seth Dallaire as its chief revenue officer, starting in November. Dallaire has spent the last five years as VP of global advertising sales and marketing at Amazon Advertising.
Instacart notes that Dellaire drove unprecedented growth for Amazon’s advertising business across Amazon.com, its owned and operated properties as well as mobile and Kindle platforms worldwide. Prior to Amazon, he had leadership roles at Yahoo! and Microsoft.

"Instacart is changing the face of online grocery shopping, and I’m thrilled to be joining at such a pivotal moment for the company and industry,” said Dallaire. “As consumers continue to become more comfortable buying their groceries online, there are an increasing number of opportunities for brands and retailers, large and small, to engage them more deeply. I look forward to working with Instacart’s brand partners and retailers to enhance the experience for consumers and drive business growth.”
