Stuller provides insight during challenging times

Lafayette, LA (3 March 2009) — Matthew Stuller, CEO, founder and president of Stuller, Inc., recently served as a featured guest at an educational forum at the Southern Jewelry Travelers Association (SJTA) Show in Atlanta.

“I feel privileged to take part in this major international industry event,” says Stuller. “Similar to our business, SJTA is built on not only helping retail jewelers shape their stores but also serving as a valuable resource in challenging times.”

Stuller joins other select panelists to share his own unique perspective and insights to arm retailers with tools and tactics they will need to stay on the “cutting edge” for 2009 and beyond.

The Lafayette native joins the roundtable with other industry icons who have provided their expertise to jewelers nationwide. These panelists include: David Peters, Jewelers of America; Doug Kerns, Gemvision; Linus Drogs, AU Enterprises/Palladium Alliance International and Terry Chandler, Diamond Council of America.

“During Chuck’s time with us, he has become a very dear friend and has provided professional leadership based on his integrity, talent, energy and passion for excellence.”
