(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.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
