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. Most recently, she worked at the Birks Group as part of its senior management team, where she was the VP of merchandising and merchandise planning. 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.

In her new position, Mayher will provide overall strategy, leadership and direction for the merchandising organization of the company, overseeing all brand merchandising for national accounts and the independent channel, and will also direct merchandising for the Frederick Goldman Luxury Group (Scott Kay and Karl Lagerfeld). She will focus on utilizing her aesthetic sensibility to create beautiful, innovative products and help to develop new and adjacent product categories. She will report directly to Jonathan Goldman, chief executive officer of Frederick Goldman Inc.

“Merritt is a strong addition to the senior management team we have been building over the past several years,” says Jonathan Goldman, CEO. “As we build a platform for growth, elevating our merchandising team is a critical step and Merritt brings an enormous skill set.”

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.”
