FOURTH GENERATION JOINS

HAMILTON JEWELERS’ FAMILY LEGACY

~ Andrew Siegel joins the Hamilton team ~

Princeton, NJ, May 23, 2017: Hamilton Jewelers is pleased to announce the arrival of the Siegel family’s fourth generation into the business, Andrew Siegel. Andrew will be joining the firm on June 1st as Director of Business Strategy and Operations. He will be responsible for identifying growth opportunities as well as assisting in achieving established Hamilton company-wide business objectives across all areas of the organization.

The legacy of Hamilton’s family tradition began in 1927, when Irving Siegel, Andrew’s great-grandfather, envisioned the creation of a brand that would embody the finest in service, quality, and expertise. This commitment to excellence continued when Irving’s son, Martin, joined his father in 1955, having his own insight to broaden the merchandise assortment and open additional locations in the market. In 1982, Hank, currently President of Hamilton, joined Hamilton with his personal acumen: continually enhance the Hamilton brand, raise the bar in every aspect of the business, and seek growth for the Hamilton signature to a broader audience.

As Andrew begins his Hamilton career, it is with a similar passion to maintain distinction and individuality
in a hastened world, which often requires a nimble yet personal influence. Says Andrew, “I grew up in a generation that embraces having the world at our fingertips, where speed and digitization can sometimes dilute the intimate experience of our industry. At the same time, we covet personalization in all aspects of our lives. There is a renaissance to discover customization, which blends effortlessly with the craftsmanship of Hamilton artisans. My goal is to weave the convenience of global interaction with the personal spirit and quality experience that clients appreciate and have come to expect from Hamilton.”

Andrew graduated from Emory University in 2010 with a B.A. in both Economics and Political Science. He was then recruited by the Alexander Group, a revenue growth consulting firm specializing in sales effectiveness and business strategy. The Alexander Group’s clients include Fortune 1000 corporations around the world, and during his 7 years there, Andrew worked with over 40 clients to grow revenue through various projects that improved the ways companies serve their customers. Continues Siegel, “I am honored to join Hamilton as the fourth generation in the business, and to preserve our unique attributes in the marketplace while helping us continue to innovate in a changing world, just as my great-grandfather, grandfather, and father have done before me. Hamilton’s unique combination of national recognition and family ownership provide a fantastic opportunity for the growth of our brand, and I look forward to carrying on our 105-year-old core values of relationships, responsibility, entrepreneurship, expertise, enduring value, integrity, and distinctive service.”
