Brown is a Graduate Gemologist and has a track record as a sales achiever in both the B2B and B2C arenas. She has worked in the fine jewelry category for 10 years. In her position with Christopher Designs, Brown will be responsible for growing distribution and sales volume in her territory.

“We are thrilled to be adding Leigh-Anne to our sales force,” said Christopher Slowinski, president and CEO. “Her knowledge of the product, as well as her experience and ability to tell the story of the brand will augment our sales force and help drive us to the next level.”

“Having worked with several jewelry brands as well as a number of retailers, I’m excited to have the opportunity to impact sales at Christopher Designs,” said Brown. “My experience in selling a concept will definitely come in handy as I can explain to retailers how to differentiate Christopher Designs from competitors and remain profitable in a competitive marketplace.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
