Pandora’s chief operating officer, Jeremy Schwartz, has resigned ahead of the new president and chief executive officer starting.
Schwartz, who was formerly CEO at The Body Shop, joined the business last September after the jewellery giant’s chief exec stepped down.
Together with the Pandora’s chief financial officer, Schwartz was charged with managing the company and leading the execution of its strategy until the appointment of a new CEO.
Consequently, as the brand’s new president and CEO prepares to take office in the foreseeable future, Schwartz has resigned from his position at Pandora.
Following a mutual agreement between the chairman of the board of directors and Jeremy Schwartz, the resignation will take effect as of today, with Schwartz remaining available as an advisor to Lacik to support the onboarding to Pandora.
Pandora chairman, Peder Tuborgh, who has also stated he will be stepping down once the new CEO has settled into the role, shares: “I have sympathy for Jeremy’s decision considering the overlap of competencies between him and Alexander Lacik.
“I would like to thank Jeremy for his significant contributions to Pandora. Together with Anders Boyer, he has been instrumental in driving the diagnosis phase of Programme NOW, and he is leaving a clear roadmap to execute on.”
