(Press Release) NEW YORK — Tiffany & Co. announced that its board of directors has elected Roger Farah as chairman, effective Oct. 2.

Farah, 64, joined the Tiffany (NYSE: TIF) board in March 2017. He has served in leadership roles at Ralph Lauren Corp., Venator Group Inc., R.H. Macy & Co. Inc. and Federated Merchandising Services.

Michael J. Kowalski, chairman since 2002, joined the board in 1995 and will remain a director. In addition, Kowalski, CEO from 1999 until his retirement effective March 2015, and interim CEO since February 2017, will relinquish that title when Tiffany’s newly appointed CEO, Alessandro Bogliolo, joins the company in October.

Kowalski said, “Roger has significant experience as a leader in the luxury retail industry, and I and my fellow directors value tremendously his expertise and insight which have been apparent during his time on the board. With the appointment of Alessandro as our new CEO, and under Roger’s leadership on the board, I believe we are well positioned to execute on strategies to drive comparable store sales growth and stronger earnings growth in the longer term.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
