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.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
