Signet Jewelers Ltd. said Thursday morning that it tapped a trio of new independent directors.
The jeweler, which operates Kay, Jared, H.Samual, Ernest Jones and its namesake chain, has appointed former Warnaco Inc. president and chief executive officer Helen McCluskey. McCluskey had held various executive positions at Warnaco until the company was acquired by PVH Corp. last October.
McCluskey serves as an independent director of PVH, a position she assumed following the merger with Warnaco.
Signet also tapped Eugenia Ulasewicz, who worked as of president of Burberry Group PLC’s American division until her retirement in March 2013. Ulasewicz joined Burberry in 1998 and became a member of its executive committee in 2006.
