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.”

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.”
