New York City -- David Yurman on Wednesday announced that Glen T. Senk will join the fine-jewelry company as CEO, effective Feb. 27. Senk, who on Tuesday announced he was stepping down as CEO of Urban Outfitters, will take an ownership stake in the privately owned company.
“We have known and respected Glen for more than a decade — as much for his creative vision and inspired leadership as for his exceptional management and operational ability. His arrival will allow us to truly focus on what we love doing – designing – while we collectively build an even greater global brand and the company we’ve always wanted,” said founders David and Sybil Yurman.
Senk, 55, joined Urban Outfitters in 1994 as president of its Anthropologie brand. He was named CEO in 2007. Prior to joining the company, Senk served as senior VP and general merchandise manager of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. and CEO for the London-based Habitat International Merchandise and Marketing Group.
