CRANSTON – Jewelry maker Alex and Ani LLC is replacing its chief financial officer and adding six new senior executives as part of a 250-employee national expansion, the company announced Monday.
Former CFO David Rozen, who served in the position for a year, has “left to pursue other opportunities,” according to a press release, and will be replaced by Jayne Fitzpatrick-Conway.
Fitzpatrick-Conway was formerly CFO at Circa Brands Inc., a global buyer and reseller of previously owned goods; Planet Fitness LLP; and Gulf Oil. She is scheduled to start June 23.
The bulk of the 250 new positions at Alex and Ani, some 180, will be in retail, to support nationwide store expansion, said company spokesman Gregg Perry. They include both full- and part-time work.
The six senior executives are part of 70 new positions at corporate headquarters in Cranston.
The management changes are the first since
the departure of former CEO Giovanni Feroce in March.
The six new executive hires are:
Wendy Duncan, senior vice president of marketing.
Tarik Chaudhary, senior vice president of information technology.
Igor Bekker, vice president of e-commerce.
Mary Beth Schneider, vice president and deputy general counsel of corporate operations.
Jane Danek, vice president and deputy general counsel of finance and compliance.
