[componentheading] About our Joker [/componentheading]

“I like to think I have a sense of humor,” says Jonathan Mervis, a third-generation family jeweler with Mervis Diamond Importers in Washington, DC. “My grandfather, who started our family business, was the master joker and story teller. He is my inspiration in both business and personal life.” After graduating with a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from University of Maryland, Jonathan now works as digital strategist for the family business. With an eye toward innovation and new business development, he is particularly interested in developing an e-commerce revenue stream and leveraging online marketing to drive brick-and-mortar sales.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
