(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI – Meredith Thomas, an independent broker of Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group, was recently recognized for his outstanding achievements as the 2018 recipient of the company’s Legacy Award. 

The award was presented before an audience of his agent and broker peers, by his son, Simon Thomas, at JM Summit, Jewelers Mutual’s annual conference for its agents and brokers.

“He’s enjoyed a long and successful career in the insurance industry and has had a lifelong affection for Jewelers Mutual,” Simon Thomas said. “He is passionate about his business and his clients. Our success stems from this passion.”

Thomas started his career at Lloyds of London reviewing and writing policy wording. In 1975, while working for Minets (now AON), he was asked to move to Uganda where he became the youngest managing director at age 24. In 1983, he moved his family from England to Scotland to work at TH Marsh, where he began cultivating his expertise in Jewellers Block Insurance. The family moved to Canada in 1987 and Thomas continued to share his expertise of Jewellers Block. In 1998, Thomas formed CJB Insurance and the agency quickly grew to become the leader in the Canadian Jewellers Block space.

Thomas is an active member in his community and beyond. He has donated his time to many projects, including serving as president in various Rotary clubs, official election monitor in El Salvador, ambulance driver in South America and much more. He currently spends his time and energy at his local church restoring and renovating the property.

“I respect Meredith’s true passion for the jewelry industry and his history of success with Jewelers Mutual,” said Scott Murphy, president and CEO of Jewelers Mutual. “Meredith embraces the opportunity to build relationships and delivers the level of jewelry insurance expertise jewelers rely on to protect what matters most to them. His commitment, loyalty and dedication to his clients and team is second to none and it’s an honor to recognize him for his achievements.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
