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.”

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.”
