(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Citizen announces that they will be partnering with star basketball player CJ McCollum.

With the launch of its new branding campaign “Purposeful Power,” McCollum is the perfect fit for Citizen. He is known for much more than his talent on the basketball court but also for his involvement in his community as an entrepreneur and philanthropist. In 2016, he opened up the CJ McCollum Dream Center, which is an innovative learning room at the Blazers Boys & Girls Club outfitted with new computers, books, art, and learning tools. The Center aims to provide a safe and inspiring space for underserved youth to learn, explore, create, and grow. He also helps foster local youths’ interest in journalism through an initiative called CJ’s Press Pass; it grants aspiring journalists access to postgame news conferences and provides them the opportunity to attend events with McCollum, to receive personalized mentorship from members of the media, and to have their work published.

And to add further to his resume, McCollum is also a wine connoisseur. Last year he released his own wine label McCollum Heritage 91 and just recently he and his wife Elise purchased a vineyard in Oregon wine country.

CJ McCollum will be featured in Citizen’s advertising and social media campaigns this holiday season and into 2022.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
