01/18/2022

Highly-Qualified Corporate Leader Brings Decades of Accounting, Capital Markets, Finance and Strategic Planning Experience to the Company’s Board

1847 Goedeker Inc. (NYSE American: GOED) (“Goedeker” or the “Company”), one of the largest specialty ecommerce players in the U.S. household appliances market, today announced that it has appointed Jim Schneider to its Board of Directors (the “Board”), effective immediately. Mr. Schneider’s appointment, which is an output of the Company’s ongoing Board refresh, reflects feedback and input from an array of stockholders. He fills the Board vacancy created when Selim Bassoul, who is now Chief Executive Officer of Six Flags Entertainment Corporation, stepped down as a director due to emerging obligations.

Albert Fouerti, Chief Executive Officer and Director, commented:

"Our Board is very pleased to advance its ongoing director refresh process by appointing Jim, who brings decades of experience in accounting, capital markets, finance and strategic initiatives and transactions. His background as a Big Four accounting firm partner and chief financial officer will add immediate value to the business as management continues optimizing the capital structure and pursuing long-term growth. He is the ideal addition to the Board at this important point in the Company’s lifecycle.”

Mr. Schneider possesses a vast background in capital allocation, corporate finance and strategic planning. He has served as the Chairman of Horizon Bank in Austin, TX since 2006 and as an Operating Partner of Lead Edge Capital, a private equity firm, since 2010.
