(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.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
