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.”

Wilkerson Paves the Way for the Future

After serving the San Antonio, Texas community for decades, C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers closed its doors earlier this year. Aaron and Mary Peñaloza, the store’s owners, chose Wilkerson to handle their retirement sale. “In the first six days, we did six months’ worth of business,” says Aaron. “In the first three weeks, we did a year’s worth of business.” Mary Peñaloza says Wilkerson’s ability to tailor the sale to their store’s requirements really made it all so much easier. “They are professionals,” she says. “They know what they’re doing. They have a plan, but they will listen to you and adjust that plan to your needs.”
