Pandora names new chief HR officer

Jewellery brand Pandora has appointed Byron Clayton as its new chief HR officer.

Due to take up his role on 1 February, Clayton will join the business from IKEA where he has held the position of deputy chief people officer. Prior to this, he worked in HR leadership positions at Nokia, Microsoft, Maersk, AstraZeneca, and Mercer.

In his new position, he will report to Pandora chief executive Alexander Lacik and serve on the company’s executive leadership team.

Lacki said: “Byron’s impressive resume cuts across multiple industries and geographies, and he has a great understanding of how to connect HR to commercial requirements. He has shown that he can build strong organisations in complex environments, and his most recent experience at IKEA – an affordable global retail brand that caters to a mass-market audience – carries a lot of relevance to Pandora. I look forward to welcoming him to the team.”

A US citizen, Clayton has lived and worked in the US, Singapore, Thailand, Finland, Denmark and the UK. He now lives in Copenhagen with his Danish wife and two sons.

At Pandora, he will succeed Erik Schmidt who joined the company in 2019 and has played a key role in the globalisation of Pandora’s people and leadership practices.

Lacik added: “Erik has been instrumental in shaping the Pandora organisation for our growth journey, and I would like to express my sincere thanks for his contributions. After more than 30 years in business, Erik has decided to retire from corporate life, and I wish him nothing but the best in his next chapter.”
