Leaving the board after reaching his term limit of six years is Michael Langhammer, CEO of Quality Gold, a renowned and trusted manufacturer with worldwide presence and offices in the USA, Canada, Italy and India.

Michael Lerche, President of Gold Star Jewellery will be completing his final 1-year term as President of The Plumb Club and Sam Sandberg, Chairman at A. Jaffe, will continue as Vice President.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kristie Nicolosi to the board,” said Michael Lerche. “Her contributions to The Club have already made their mark and we look forward to having her insights and talent on the board. We are happy to welcome Corinna Bhasin to the Executive Committee. Her help on the board has been invaluable. The returning board members, Sam Sandberg, Roger Forman, A.J.
