Michael Lund Petersen – the founder of Pandora Jewelry who’s credited for devising its marketing strategy – is shifting his attention to the horse track and his young colt, Mor Spirit, who’s being primed to compete in the Kentucky Derby, the Courier-Journal writes. The article says that Peterson, a “rookie” horseman, has recently scaled back his commitments to Pandora, where he currently remains a senior adviser.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
