Former Harry Winston Manufacturing Director Joins Superfit
Blane Soper comes on board to lead the production team for the Philadelphia-based jewelry manufacturer.
Blane Soper joins Superfit after working as the director of manufacturing at Harry Winston for about four-and-a-half years.
In addition to his time at Harry Winston, Soper served as the production manager for Kurt Gaum Inc. in New York for almost a decade and spent more than 16 years as the technical manager for Princeton, New Jersey-based retailer Hamilton Jewelers.
At Superfit, Soper will help grow the Cliq brand by increasing production capacity while not sacrificing quality and sustainability standards, the company said.
Company President Eric Alulis said Soper’s experience leading one of the highest quality fine jewelry production facilities in the world will be a “great asset” to the company as it scales for future growth.
Soper said, “With the Cliq brand on the cusp of significant growth, I am thrilled to help scale it up and lead it into the future with state-of-the-art manufacturing and production capabilities.”
