Roger Gesswein III Promoted to Vice President
He is a member of the fourth generation of Gessweins to lead the Connecticut-based jewelry tool and equipment company.
The decision to promote Gesswein to VP from market development manager was made Oct. 26 via a unanimous vote by the board.
The company stated: “Over his tenure, Roger has demonstrated a deep passion for the jewelry industry, the legacy of our family business and a relentless drive to serve jewelers.”
Gesswein holds a master’s in business administration from UCLA and is active within the jewelry industry, serving on the boards of MJSA and the Jewelers Board of Trade.
He is also a member of the 24 Karat Club and Jewelers Mutual Group’s Jewelry Industry Council.
“In his pursuit to advance Gesswein, Roger has taken advantage of many networking opportunities, both within the U.S. and abroad,” the company said. “His international footprint and enthusiasm to form relationships within the jewelry trade is reminiscent of his father and former chairman Roger Gesswein Jr.”
“We look forward to continued growth and success with Roger III as our vice president.”
