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.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
