Tiffany’s President to Retire

Tiffany & Co.’s president James E. Quinn will retire in early 2012, the
company announced Jan. 12.
Quinn, 58, joined Tiffany in 1986 and has served as president since 2003. From
1992 to 1998 he was executive vice president, followed by an appointment to
vice chairman, a position he held until his appointment as president. Prior to
joining Tiffany in 1986, Quinn held several financial management positions
in the banking field. At Tiffany, Quinn has been responsible for the company’s
sales outside the Americas.
Michael J. Kowalski, chairman and chief executive officer, said, “Over the past
25 years, few have contributed as much to Tiffany as Jim. A search has been
commissioned for a senior executive to assume Jim’s responsibilities for the
Asia-Pacific, Japan and Europe regions as well as emerging markets. This
individual will report directly to me as an executive vice president.”
