Stanley Zale has left his role as vice president of diamond and gemstone procurement at Stuller to become an industry consultant.
Zale, the grandson of Zales Jewelers founder Morris Zale, had been with the Louisiana-based jewelry manufacturer since 2006. He plans to move to Chicago to be closer to family, he told Rapaport News last week. Prior to his time with Stuller, Zale spent a year as a vice president at Graff and seven years at luxury jeweler Louis Glick.
“I intend to stay very involved in the industry through consulting work,” Zale noted.
His last day at Stuller was May 12.
