With 31,000 customers we need to constantly follow up with them, our work shop, and each other to ensure the best customer service possible. Accepting that you can’t do everything yourself is the first step. I have found the 5 Ps — proper planning prevents poor performance — help create a successful strategy. I have learned this the hard way, sometimes over and over again. You have to make the plan a priority in your life.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
