TOLEDO, Ohio-Libbey elected Theo Killion to join its board of directors during its annual meeting of shareholders earlier this week. William A. Foley and Deborah G. Miller also were reelected to the board.

Killion is currently CEO and a director of Zale Corporation, the jewelry retailer. Prior to joining Zale Corporation, Killion was employed with the executive recruiting firm Berglass+Associates, focusing on companies in the retail, consumer goods and fashion industries. He also previously served as executive vice president of human resources at Tommy Hilfiger, and in various management positions with Limited Brands.

Retiring from the board were Terence P. Stewart, a member since 1997, and Richard I. Reynolds, a member since 1993. In December 2013, Reynolds retired from his position as executive vice president, strategy program management, after a 44-year career with Libbey which included assignments as the company's chief financial officer and chief operating officer.

Stephanie Streeter, Libbey's CEO, said, "We are absolutely thrilled to have Theo join our board. He has exceptional experience in a variety of companies and situations, knows the retail space, one of our largest channels, intimately, and has recently led his company through a successful turnaround. He brings with him a wide spectrum of experiences from HR to operations to strategy. We're so pleased he is joining us as we begin the next phase of our company's long-range strategy."
