AGS Names Circle of Distinction Honorees

I'm really thrilled about having been named a recipient of the Triple Zero Awards at this prestigious event.  See the official release from AGS below:

Las Vegas--The American Gem Society (AGS) has announced the 2010 Circle of Distinction honorees, naming Terry Burman, the chief executive officer of Signet Jewelers and chairman of Sterling Jewelers, as this year's recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award, and revealing a slate of Triple Zero Award winners.

This year's recipients of the Triple Zero Awards are: Phyllis Bergman, president of Mercury Ring Corp; Allen Brill, president and CEO of Rolex Watch U.S.A.; and the Clark Family of B.C. Clark, Inc.--specifically B.C. Clark, Jr., chairman emeritus; Jim Clark, chairman; Coleman Clark, president; and Mitchell Clark, executive vice president.

The awards will be given at AGS' 10th Circle of Distinction Dinner, scheduled for Sunday, July 25, at The Plaza hotel in New York City.

"The awards presentation is one of the highlights of the Circle of Distinction Dinner, and it's always a great pleasure to honor each year's recipients," Ruth Batson, AGS executive director and CEO, said in a press release issued Friday. "The dinner is a great opportunity for our members to meet, mingle with their peers, and honor some of the industry's best and brightest professionals."

She added that The Plaza, the Circle of Distinction event and the AGS each share a rich and distinguished history and represent the best of the best, Batson said.

"So it is only fitting that the Circle of Distinction would honor these recipients at The Plaza," Batson said.

The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails, which will be followed by a three-course dinner and the awards presentation at 7 p.m.
