(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.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
