“Holly Wesche has already made tremendous contributions to our board,” said JA CEO David Bonaparte. “She is a brilliant businesswoman whose passion for Jewelers of America runs deep.”

In addition to Wesche, the newly elected directors are as follows:

Lawrence Bock, owner and president of Texas luxury jeweler Bachendorf’s

The election took place at JA’s biannual board meeting in New York on July 30.
