Day’s Jewelers Announces New VP Finance
David Gilman joins the employee-owned company.
David Gilman is the new vice president of finance, the company announced in a press release.
He will oversee the information technology department and internal consumer credit department. He will also be responsible for Day’s facility leasing and bank relationships.
Gilman has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and business administration.
He was previously the chief financial officer for Tempus Jets, a role that saw him restructure the company’s private side to avoid bankruptcy.
He was also chief financial officer for Mainetoday Media, Inc., a parent company for newspapers like the Portland Press Herald, Kennebec Journal, and the Morning Sentinel.
Gilman will serve as a trustee on the new board of trustees for Day’s Employee Stock Ownership Plan. Last year, Day’s became a 100 percent employee-owned company.
Gilman will oversee the stock and represent Day’s employees alongside Richard Mendelson, Jeff Corey, and Kathy Corey.
Gilman said: “After spending years away from the family-owned atmosphere, meeting the Coreys reinvigorated my desire to work alongside people that are passionate about their product and their colleagues as opposed to ‘making the quick buck’.
“There are many great things to come here, and I am honored to be a part of the team that will make it all happen. We have just scratched the surface of our impact on the industry, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue the vision of building a company that stands the test of time.”
