On July 29, Birks Group executive vice president and chief financial officer Michael Rabinovitch announced his intention to resign, the result of the company’s downsizing of its Florida office.
“Rabinovitch does not wish to relocate to Montreal” where the company’s corporate functions will be consolidated, it said in an Aug. 1 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Rabinovitch, who has been part of Birks’ senior management team for nine years, will remain through Oct. 27 to ensure a smooth transition. The company has enlisted a search firm to find his replacement.
Board member Louis L. Roquet also resigned, after getting a new position.
