NEW YORK — Accessory Place, the 100-unit costume jewelry and accessories chain, said Mark A. Hoffman, president and chief executive, resigned “to pursue other interests.”

Raymond H. Wechsler has been appointed chief executive officer. He continues as chairman.

Wechsler and Hoffman could not be reached for comment.

The privately owned company, based in Leonia, N.J., emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings last year.
