Pandora’s Head of North America Steps Down
Sid Keswani has left the jewelry company to become president of lifestyle company Centric Brands.
The former president left the Danish jewelry company to become president of Centric Brands, a lifestyle company holding licenses for brands like Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.
“Sid handed over the market in great shape, and we are grateful for his contributions over the years. Work to find Sid’s successor is ongoing, and we will communicate on this in due time,” said a Pandora spokesperson.
Keswani joined the company in 2018 following the resignation of Scott Burger.
Before joining Pandora, he was the CEO of Texas-based grocery store chain Fiesta Mart. He was also a Target Corp. executive for 19 years and senior vice president of operations for convenience store chain Susser Holdings.
“I am excited to join the company at this pivotal time to help drive operational excellence and efficiencies, and ensure we are delivering customer-centric experiences,” Keswani said in a press release announcing his appointment.
Centric Brands also added former Lord & Taylor president Ruth Hartman to its board of directors.
Pandora made headlines recently following its announcement that it would no longer be using natural diamonds, causing a stir in the jewelry industry.
