Replacement to take over on July 1.

Philippe Mellier has resigned as CEO of De Beers and will be succeeded by Bruce Cleaver, who will take the reins on July 1, according to Rapaport. The article says that Mellier steps down from the position five years after he joined the diamond mining company. The change, the article adds, comes after Martin Rapaport called on Mellier to resign last November, “arguing the company’s refusal to lower rough prices was ‘destroying’ the diamond trade. De Beers later claimed rough prices declined 15 percent during 2015.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
