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

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
