(Press Release)
BALTIMORE, MD – Smyth Jewelers announced the appointment of Robert Yanega as chief financial officer.

Yanega joined the company in 2003 and has held various operational and administrative roles during his tenure.

Prior to his latest appointment, Yanega bolstered Smyth’s financial strategy helping to foster a new banking relationship and catalyzed the profitable sale of subsidiaries. In his new position, he will lead and manage all fiscal matters and provide tactical counsel for Smyth’s sustained growth and development.

“Robert was a natural fit for this executive position,” said Tom Smyth, president of Smyth Jewelers. “For more than a decade, he has laid the groundwork to become a leading adviser to Smyth Jewelers, and we have every confidence that he will continue to keep our company financially fit and poised to prosper.”

Yanega holds a B.A. from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA, and a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Phoenix. He has been a Baltimore resident since 2000.

Established in 1914, Smyth Jewelers operates three Maryland showrooms in Timonium, Annapolis and Ellicott City.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
