NEW YORK, NY – Frederick Goldman Luxury Group, the new extension of Frederick Goldman Inc., has announced new hires to both Scott Kay and Karl Lagerfeld bridal and engagement jewelry. In a move toward expansion, the hires come right before the group’s premier at the upcoming JCK/Luxury Show in Las Vegas.

Mark Taylor is set to join Karl Lagerfeld as vice president of sales. With former tenure at Scott Kay, and then continuing his work in the industry in senior sales positions, he has acquired more than 25 years of sales and management experience. In his new role, he will report directly to Jaime Polk, SVP of sales for FGLG.

“With his proven history of building brands and motivating field sales teams, we look forward to Mark leading the Karl Lagerfeld sales launch,” says Polk. “Mark has exceptional sales and management skills, along with a deep familiarity with high-end designer brands, which is an invaluable asset. Not only will he be a great addition to Karl Lagerfeld, but to the Frederick Goldman Luxury Group as well.”

In addition, Chelle McFerran will join Scott Kay as West region account executive, recently representing several independent bridal and fine jewelry brands such as Martin Flyer, Sydney Evan and Belle Etoile. Previously she held senior sales positions with several luxury brands such as Damiani, Zenith Watches/LVMH and Baccarat. Responsible for all aspects of account management, McFerran has received recognition for her sales proficiency and has worked closely with top marketing executives to execute many special events. She will also report to Polk.

Frederick Goldman Luxury Group will officially launch Karl Lagerfeld bridal and fine jewelry during the JCK/Luxury Show at Mandalay Bay in Ballroom Breakers BH. It will also debut Scott Kay’s Embrace collection as well as several collection expansions in the same location.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
