RAPAPORT... Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) has elected Joseph Esposito as the new chairman of its board of directors.

Esposito is executive vice president of National Chain Group, a contract manufacturer and supplier based in Rhode Island, MJSA said last week. As chairman, he will succeed Steven Cipolla, who is president at National Chain Group and has headed MJSA since 2016. Meanwhile, Cipolla has become chair of the MJSA Education Foundation.

Prior to joining National Chain Group, Esposito owned Prime Time Manufacturing, which he ran for 20 years until Berkshire Hathaway-owned Richline Group purchased it in 2007. He also headed Richline’s global manufacturing for 12 years.

Meanwhile, David Siminski, vice president of sales and marketing at United Precious Metal Refining, has become vice chair at MJSA. Ann Arnold, chief strategy officer for the Buyers Intelligence Group (BIG), will take over as officer at large, while Arien Gessner, president of Rio Grande, was elected to a three-year term as director. Molly Bell, the executive vice president of Rio Grande, has stepped down from the board after eight years, MJSA added.
