He starts the role on Oct. 2.

(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.”

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
