– USA, NC – The Board of Directors of Charles & Colvard, Ltd. (Nasdaq:CTHR), the original and leading worldwide source of moissanite, selected board member Suzanne Miglucci to be the next President and Chief Executive Officer. This follows H. Marvin Beasley’s decision to retire from his current roles of President, Chief Executive Officer and Director, effective December 1, 2015.
“Retail is undergoing a monumental transformation,” said Neal Goldman, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Charles & Colvard. “For brand manufacturers like Charles & Colvard to compete successfully, we believe we need to embrace omni-channel marketing and distribution strategies designed to increase consumer awareness and acceptance of Charles & Colvard moissanite. Ms. Miglucci brings these talents along with deep branding expertise to us in her new role as President and Chief Executive Officer of our Company.”
Mr. Goldman continued, “As corporations strive to optimize the customer experience and gain market share in an increasingly complex digital marketing space, it is no surprise they are turning to their marketing bench to lead the charge. With our decision to appoint Ms. Miglucci, Charles & Colvard joins the ranks of other brand name market-leading companies which have also recently appointed marketing executives to their helms. We believe Suzanne, as our new President and Chief Executive Officer, will advance the Company to its next levels of success.”
