The former Cartier chairman will be responsible for developing relationships with retailers.

Cadar, a fine jewelry brand recently founded by designer Michal Kadar, announced that industry veteran Ralph Destino has been appointed a director of the company. He’ll be responsible for guiding the brand’s entry into the marketplace, with a particular focus on developing relationships with retail jewelers across the country.

Destino, who served as president and chairman of Cartier during his 32-year tenure with the company, will work directly with Michal Kadar, the founder and creative director of CADAR. Following his retirement from Cartier, Destino served as chairman of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and led the organization for three years. He holds the positions of chairman emeritus at both Cartier and the GIA.

“I am extremely pleased to join Cadar as director, and I look forward to ushering the brand toward continued growth by nurturing and expanding relationships with the most prestigious fine jewelry retailers,” says Destino. “Michal Kadar is an extraordinarily talented designer, and the Cadar collection is truly superb. I have no doubt that Cadar will be very well received and extremely successful in the marketplace.”

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.”
