Blue Apron CFO Brad Dickerson is taking over the chief executive job from co-founder Matt Salzberg, the recipe kit delivery company said on Thursday.

Why it matters: This is an attempt to right a ship that has been sinking since Blue Apron went public in late June. Not only has its share price fallen by two-thirds, but it's also faced Amazon entering its market, layoffs and shareholder lawsuits. Shares climbed slightly in aftermarket trading on the announcement.
