NEW YORK, NY – Frederick Goldman Inc., one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of fine jewelry in North America, announces the hire of Merritt Mayher to the senior management team as chief merchandising officer.

Mayher comes to Frederick Goldman with an impressive background in merchandising and product development.

Prior to Birks Group, she was chief administrative officer for Micronotes, a marketing software firm. She also served as president and CEO of Shreve, Crump & Low and Schwarzschild Jewelers. Earlier in her career, she spent 11 years at Tiffany & Co. as VP of merchandising, leading the category management group in which she was responsible for worldwide assortment planning.

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.
