He will continue to be involved with the CJA as a freelance writer. Carla Adams, currently a manager in the association office, will carry out the duties of executive director on an interim basis until a successor to Land is named, likely by mid-January.

“Brian Land was engaged primarily to assist in managing the amalgamation of the Canadian Jewellers Association with Jewelers Vigilance Canada,” said Marco Miserendino, chairman of the CJA Board of Directors.

“The knowledge and skill he brought to that file was of great assistance. The successful completion of that assignment now enables both Brian and the association to determine and pursue their respective future directions.”

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
