Lafayette, La.–Former Signet Jewelers executive Bryan Morgan has been hired by Stuller as its new chief systems and technology officer, the company announced Wednesday.
Morgan worked at Signet/Sterling from 2007 until he stepped down in June, just five months after being named chief operating officer. Signet said Morgan–whom many considered to be the heir apparent to the now-retired Mark Light–was resigning due to “violations of company policy unrelated to financial matters.”
His role is a new positon for Stuller, and will have him overseeing the jewelry manufacturer and supplier’s IT infrastructure as well as Gemvision operations.
Morgan’s scheduled start date is Nov. 6, and he will relocate from Ohio to Lafayette, Louisiana, where Stuller is headquartered, for the position.
Prior to his time at Signet, Morgan held a number of positions with The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in Akron, Ohio, and, before that, worked for General Mills.
He holds a bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University and an MBA from Harvard.
Commenting on Morgan’s addition, Stuller President and COO Danny Clark said: “We are thrilled to add Bryan to our team. His industry knowledge, combined with outstanding leadership and management skills, will enable us to continue to strive for the best products and solutions for our customers.”
