Five Things We Never Knew About … Rodney RaynerI have a passion for motorcycles, especially Ducatis. Every summer I go for a 3,000-mile, 10-day ride from my home just south of London, across France to Switzerland, and end up in Italy, then repeat in the other direction!

My first job after leaving school at 16 was working in a chandlery. Sailing is another hobby of mine.

I  love unpretentious fine food and wine, especially California wines like zinfandels by Martinelli Jackass Hill (love that name!) and Turley, as well as Flowers’ pinot noir.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
