Tim Harrington, formerly president and CEO of Fogdog Sports, has been appointed chairman and CEO of eRollover, a destination for retirement planning, education and analysis.
eRollover allows people to manage, connect, learn and share information about retirement planning through a unique social media community in a financial services vertical.
“As we rebound from this challenging economy, nothing is more important to consumers now than planning for their long term security,” Mr. Harrington said. “This is a perfect opportunity to utilize my background in financial planning and online services to help make eRollover the trusted web source for retirement planning information.”
ERollever's statement said that at Fogdog Sports, Harrington negotiated an exclusive operating and equity agreement with Nike Inc., their first e-commerce partnership. He raised more than $100 million from private and public financing, and guided Fogdog through a successful IPO with CSFB as lead banker. Following the IPO, he successfully completed a merger with GSI Commerce.
Most recently, he was the founder and co-owner of Armor Gear LLC, a consumer products company specializing in high-quality travel gear.
