Why Are Executives Jumping Ship At Barnes & Noble’s Nook Unit?

In the past few months, three key senior executives have left Barnes & Noble’s Nook ebook and digital device division. Bill Saperstein, Jim Hilt and Jamie Iannone have all jumped ship. In December, Iannone, the director of digital products, left for Samsclub.com, a division of Wal-Mart, according to the Wall Street Journal. In mid-January, Barnes & Noble announced that Hilt, who was vice president and general manager for global ebooks (essentially running the company’s ebook sales business) will leave the company in February and that Saperstein, who was vice president for digital products hardware engineering, has already left, according to industry publication Publisher’s Lunch.
