Dallas—Texas jeweler Eiseman Jewels has named Taylor Frank as its new president as it heads into its 60th anniversary this fall.

Frank is the company’s fourth president and the second non-member of the Eiseman family to hold the role.

He has served as managing director since 2018 and will take on his new role as of May 1.

Richard D. Eiseman, Jr, whose parents co-founded the company in 1963, will remain as CEO.

“[Frank] has not only been an important member of the Eiseman team of experts, but has also been an innovative and effective leader throughout his five-year tenure as managing director,” said Eiseman, Jr.

Eiseman, Jr. credited Taylor for leading the company through the pandemic, allowing it to continue to serve its customers, and for launching its concierge program to provide high-levels service to its customers.

“And perhaps most importantly, he has also upheld the core pillars upon which Eiseman Jewels was founded by my parents – expert service, quality, value and philanthropy. I cannot imagine anyone more qualified to lead the business as we plan for its future.”

As president, Frank will oversee the retailer’s day-to-day operations.

His senior leadership team will include executive vice president Andre Vorster, vice president Urek Reznik, vice president Maureen Thomas and vice president Michael Johnson. 

“I am extremely honored to serve as president of Eiseman Jewels. I know it is a position within our organization few have held and comes with a great deal of responsibility as we focus on the future of the business,” said Frank.

Frank was born in California, spending his early years there and in Colorado, later moving to Dallas in 2000.

In 2007, he graduated from the Episcopal School of Dallas, then attended Brigham Young University where he received his undergraduate degree in Recreation Management and Leadership at the Marriott School of Business. 

He then headed back to Dallas to earn his MBA in general business at Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business. 

Frank got his start in the jewelry world when he was in college, taking a job at a local jewelry store to help pay for an engagement ring for his then-girlfriend Amberly.

The two have been married for 12 years and have five children.

Frank has worked in the luxury jewelry and watch world for 12 years now, starting at Tiffany & Co. before joining Eiseman Jewels.

“I look forward to the continued partnership with Richard Eiseman, as I know there is more to learn while transitioning into this prestigious position. I also recognize that with my role as president comes an immense amount of trust given to me by the Eiseman family and our 30 Eiseman colleagues,” said Frank. 

The store’s future is “very bright,” said Eiseman, Jr., hinting at exciting news for the retailer set to be announced this fall and next year.
