(Press Release)
ANTWERP BELGIUM – Shmuel Schnitzer has been elected the new chairman of the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI).

Afterwards, WFDB President Ernie Blom said it is critical in challenging times for the diamond industry’s major global organizations to be led by experienced industry figures.

“I would like to congratulate Shmuel not only on his election, but also for his willingness to continue to provide his vast knowledge and experience of our industry for the benefit of the trade,” says Blom. “Shmuel has only just finished his fourth term overall as president of the Israel Diamond Exchange and has also served as WFDB president.”

Blom added: “He is now serving as the chairman of the WFDB’s Trade and Business Committee, and his knowledge of the issues is invaluable. It is not always easy to find the time to serve the industry, but Shmuel has the concept of public service built into him and has always been willing to help the Israeli and global diamond trade.

“It is all the more important for diamond industry figures like Shmuel to continue to play a role as head of a trade body due to the challenging conditions facing the diamond business. There is no shortage of issues facing us, and having input from experienced leaders is critical in enabling us to take our industry forward and to find solutions. I look forward to being able to call on Shmuel’s assistance in the coming years, and I applaud him for taking on another big industry challenge. The Israeli diamond industry will benefit hugely from having him as head of the IDI.”

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.”
