Shares of GameStop jumped 10% in premarket trading after the company announced Monday that it has tapped Chewy founder Ryan Cohen to lead its shift to e-commerce.

Cohen will serve as chairman for a special committee formed by GameStop’s board to help its transformation. Board members Alan Attal, Chewy’s former top operations executive, and Kurt Wolf, chief investment officer of Hestia Capital Management, also will serve on the committee.

Cohen invested in GameStop last year to help the company accelerate its push online.
