“Ben Bridge has been a part of Berkshire Hathaway for 17 years and Lisa represents a wonderful balance of continuity and evolution,” says Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Warren Buffett. “With the challenges facing retailing, I am excited to have someone passionate for the jewelry business, with creative ideas, and an understanding of today’s consumer at the helm.

“I am pleased and excited about passing the torch of leadership to the next generation of our family,” says Jon Bridge. “Lisa has been a critical part of Ben Bridge for years and will continue the tradition of service to our customers and communities that we have built over the last century while evolving the business to grow in the digital age. Her knowledge of the business and insight as a member of the next generation will greatly expand opportunities for our company.”

She graduated with honors from Washington University in St. Louis and attended the Gemological Institute of America. She spent time in Ben Bridge’s buying department, developing both her passion for gemstones and understanding of the source and design process. She launched her own namesake collection in 2015, a compilation of bold and fashionable jewelry inspired by the natural beauty she has encountered in her many travels. The Lisa Bridge Collection has been embraced by both consumers and the industry alike. The Lisa Bridge Collection has become one of the fastest growing lines for Ben Bridge.
