Signet Appoints Former Cracker Barrel CEO to Board


Signet Jewelers has appointed Sandra Cochran, the former CEO of Cracker Barrel and Books-a-Million, to its board of directors.

Cochran is a member of the Signet board’s human capital management and compensation committee. Her appointment temporarily increases the size of the board from 12 to 13 members, 12 of whom are independent. (Signet board members are term-limited, and some are due to leave soon.)

Cochran has more than 25 years of retail experience. She was CEO of Books-a-Million from 2004 to 2009, and headed Cracker Barrel, the restaurant and gift store chain, from September 2011 to November 2023. She joined Cracker Barrel as chief financial officer in 2009 and was named president and chief operating officer the following year.

She currently sits on the board of Lowe’s Companies, and previously served on the board of Dollar General.
