US jewellery company Stuller, parent company of Gemvision, has announced that its president and chief executive Jay Jackson will retire next month.
Jackson first announced his plan to retire in 2011, and has now confirmed he will leave the company on December 27, 2013.
Stuller chairman Matthew Stuller said: “Jay’s vision, passion, and leadership during his 17-year career at Stuller have been invaluable. [He] has been a very strong leader who has contributed to the growth and efficient operation of this company in countless ways."
Jackson has managed Stuller’s sales, supply chain and manufacturing operations since joining the business in 1996. He became chief operating officer in January 2009, then president and CEO in 2011.
