(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – On Saturday, March 9, 2024, the Jewelers’ Security Alliance will host its Annual Luncheon at the New York Yacht Club. At the luncheon JSA will present awards to recipients who have rendered outstanding assistance to the safety and security of the jewelry industry.

JSA will present its Nineteenth Annual Industry Service Award to Peter Montalbano, of Peter Montalbano Adjustors, Inc., one of the leading jewelry claims adjustors in the world.

John Kennedy, president of JSA said, “Peter is the gold standard of jewelry claims adjustors. He has traveled the world and investigated cases involving untold millions of dollars for major insurance carriers. He has also conducted security surveys for major jewelry firms and insurance companies to identify security vulnerabilities. He has also been a great friend of JSA for more than 30 years, speaking at conferences, rendering advice and arranging speaking engagements at Lloyd’s in London for JSA staff.”

At the Luncheon JSA will also present the 25th Annual James B. White Law Enforcement Awards to five recipients: Detective Sergeant Jeffrey Raymond, Commanding Officer of the Burglary Pattern Squad, Major Case Bureau, Nassau County Police Department, and four Detectives from the Major Case Bureau: Jesus Bonilla, Edward J. Hoctor, Jeffrey Rios, and Damiel Suarez.

Kennedy said, “This Squad’s extraordinary record of investigations and arrests in major jewelry burglaries involving millions of dollars speaks for itself. Their tireless efforts involving physical surveillance, search warrants, warranted electronic surveillance and DNA analysis has resulted in numerous arrests and the recovery of jewelry merchandise. Their cooperation with other jurisdictions in identifying and arresting burglary gangs has been dramatically effective.”

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
