CIRCA Appoints Kenneth Jay Linsne as Director of Client Services

Kenneth Jay Linsner

(PRESS RELEASE) New York — CIRCA announces the launch of its newly formed Client Services Division, which offers fair market and liquidation appraisals to the owners of fine jewelry, watches, coins, and objet de vertu. The division will also oversee estate evaluations, including but not limited to, fine and decorative arts, antiques, silver and collectibles.

CIRCA has appointed Kenneth Jay Linsner, ASA and SCV, as the director of client services, overseeing all appraisal work, production, and regional events.

An appraiser since 1970, Linsner is currently a senior member of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and a senior certified valuer (SCV) of the International Institute of Valuers, Zurich. Linsner started his training at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University and, upon graduating, refined his skills at the Brooklyn Museum. He has since lectured ­­­­­­­in “Appraisal Studies,” and developed the core course in “Research Methods for the Appraiser” at New York University.

Linsner is designated as a “Qualified Source” by the Department of Treasury of the United States and Office of the Attorney General, acting as an expert witness providing review and litigation support in many federal and civil cases involving artworks, their authenticity and value. In addition to a long and notable list of corporate clients, law firms, and private estates, Linsner is the director of Art Services International Group, which provides conservation and restoration services and advice to clients, public and private, around the globe, since 1975.

CIRCA’s president and co-founder, Richard Tilles, commented, “Ken comes to CIRCA with an impressive and established reputation, producing the highest quality appraisals. We believe his unique experience, will bring an enhanced level of service to CIRCA’s clients. One of Ken’s first initiatives will be hosting Appraisal events around the country, giving a wonderful opportunity to clients who have not previously had access to Ken’s capabilities and services.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
