David Yurman CEO Glen Senk steps down

February 20, 2014

New York--Glen Senk is resigning as CEO of David Yurman Inc. after a little less than two years in the position, effective immediately, the company confirmed Wednesday.

The brand said Senk was leaving to pursue other interests. David Yurman will now serve as CEO of his eponymous jewelry company.

Senk was the CEO of Urban Outfitters Inc. before joining David Yurman in 2012.

Prior to that, he held positions at Williams-Sonoma Inc., London-based Habitat International Merchandise and Marketing Group, and Bloomingdale’s.

Senk has a record of success in developing and expanding powerful multi-channel, multi-national retail and wholesale brands. In 2010 he made Fortune’s “Top 50 Businesspeople of the Year” list and was named the FGI Corporate Leader of the Year.

“Sybil and I brought Glen in two years ago to help us build a world-class management team and he has done an outstanding job,” Yurman said. “Part of our success has always been a direct result of our family’s involvement in the management and creative direction of the company, and I look forward to working closely with our exceptional team to help David Yurman Inc. grow even further.”
