Brad Dickerson left his CFO position at Under Armour on Tuesday and two days later he has announced a new position with Blue Apron.

During his exit Under Armour’s press release said Dickerson was leaving to pursue another professional opportunity outside the athletic-performance industry.

Blue Apron is a recipe and fresh ingredient delivery service.

Dickerson will remain as Under Armour’s CFO and COO until early 2016, at which time he will transition fully to Blue Apron.

“We’re excited to welcome Brad to the executive leadership team at Blue Apron” said Blue Apron CEO Matt Salzberg.

“Blue Apron is now shipping five million meals per month to customers across the country, up from one million meals per month less than a year ago. Brad brings deep experience in scaling fast-growing iconic brands, and we expect his leadership will be an invaluable asset to the company as we continue to grow at a rapid pace.”

Dickerson joined Under Armour in 2004 and helped drive the company from a pre-IPO position into a publicly traded firm with $US4 billion in revenue by 2015.

He joined the company as its controller and eventually came to oversee its financial organisation, leading financial operations, reporting, budgeting and forecasting teams, as well as strategic investments in infrastructure.

Dickerson previously worked as chief financial officer of Macquarie Aviation North America from 2003 to 2004 and chief financial officer of Network Building & Consulting from 1998 to 2003.

“Blue Apron is changing how people cook and eat for the better,” said Dickerson. “I’m looking forward to joining the Blue Apron team, and excited to help this rapidly expanding business redefine how food is grown and distributed in America.”

The company also announced Julie M.B. Bradley, CFO of TripAdvisor, as a member of Blue Apron’s board of directors.
