She may continue serving in another to-be-determined capacity.

The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC) has announced that Cecilia Gardner, CEO/president and general counsel, has decided to step down from her role as CEO/president at the beginning of 2017, after the planned celebration of JVC’s 100th year.

Discussions are ongoing with the executive committee to determine the scope of a continued role at JVC for Gardner. The JVC executive committee is currently conducting a review of JVC’s overall staffing requirements as it looks to secure leadership and management for the future.

“We are so appreciative of Cecilia’s contributions to the JVC during her 18-year tenure with the organization. She has been a great advocate for the jewelry industry, and we do hope to continue to work with her in the future,” says JVC Board President Steve Kaiser.

“It has been my privilege and honor to serve this organization for so long,” Gardner says. “This decision assures the continuity of our important work and is in the best interest of the organization and our members. Re-setting staffing needs in light of JVC’s increasingly prominent role in the industry is appropriate and guarantees continued success for the next 100 years.”

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
