Claire’s Appoints New CEO After Ryan Vero Resigns

“It has been an enormous privilege to serve as the CEO of Claire’s, and I am proud of all we accomplished,” Vero said in a statement. “Having worked closely with Chris since he joined Claire’s, I have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead the company.”

Cramer previously spent over 20 years with Bath & Body Works, eventually serving as its COO. He’s also been president of Parade, a Gen Z–focused intimate and lifestyle apparel retailer. He joined the company inof last year.

Claire’s has over 2,750 stores in 17 countries.

The jewelry and accessories retailer filed to go public in 2021, but last summer it decided to postpone IPO plans.
