One of Canada’s leading tech IPO candidates, online merchant Shoes.com, has recruited a high-profile U.S. e-commerce executive while letting go a rash of employees.

The Vancouver-based company will announce Thursday that it has hired Bradley Wilson, who ran the Travelocity business for Expedia Inc., as president. Mr. Wilson, who will work out of Shoes.com’s offices in Seattle, previously worked as chief marketing officer of Travelocity and before that was senior vice-president with food and drug e-commerce retailer Nutrisystem, Inc. Both Expedia and Nutrisystem are publicly listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market.
