RAPAPORT... Blue Nile has appointed Target executive Jason Goldberger as CEO to replace Harvey Kanter, four months after the online diamond retailer’s acquisition by a private-equity group.

Goldberger (pictured) has 20 years’ experience in senior positions at e-commerce groups, including Amazon, Blue Nile said last week. He was most recently chief digital officer and president of Target.com, overseeing digital strategy and execution for the discount store. Kanter — who has been CEO for five years — will hand over the position to Goldberger on Monday and remain at the company as chairman.

An investor group consisting of Bain Capital Private Equity, Bow Street and Adama Partners bought Blue Nile for about $500 million in February.
