Press Release: Jewelers of America (JA), the U.S. trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, elected Ryan Berg as its new board chairman.

Berg is also market president of Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry in San Antonio, Texas. 
He succeeds Bill Farmer Jr., a partner in Farmer’s Jewelry. The election took place this past Saturday at a JA board meeting that also concluded with the appointment of many new directors to the board. 

“Ryan has the right combination of experience that will make him an effective board chairman," said David Bonaparte, JA's president and CEO. "Like so many others in the jewelry industry, Ryan is helping his family-run jewelry business adapt, grow and evolve. He brings a fresh perspective that focuses on growing Jewelers of America and all of our members’ stores’ bottom line." 

Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry was founded by Ryan’s father, Lee Michael Berg, in 1978 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. During its 35 years in business, Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry expanded to eight stores in six markets across three states. 

“My years of service on the Jewelers of America board of directors have given me deep insight to the value that Jewelers of America provides," said Berg. "I look forward to working more closely with the board of directors and Dave Bonaparte, our president and CEO, as we continue to transform Jewelers of America and create a meaningful impact on the jewelry industry’s business outcomes."
