A nearly two-year search for a successor to Terry Burman as chief executive officer of Signet Jewelers Ltd. came to a successful conclusion Wednesday with the appointment of Michael Barnes, currently president and chief operating officer of watch and accessories marketer Fossil Inc.
Barnes, who joined Fossil in 1985, will move to Bermuda-based Signet on Dec. 1 as ceo designate and will be based in Akron, Ohio. After 10 years at Signet’s helm, Burman will retire on Jan. 29, as planned, and will be succeeded by Barnes the following day.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
