What a week! The Bremer Family was honored to host Kent Wong and Caryl Capeci this week in our Peoria store. Kent Wong is the Managing Director of Chow Tai Fook, the China-based parent company of Hearts On Fire®. The lovely Caryl Capeci is President of Hearts On Fire, home of the World’s Most Perfectly Cut Diamond™
Besides being a super-nice human being, Mr. Wong has incredible business savvy. He understands that locally-owned family businesses are just as important to the economy as large chain stores. Smart man.
While Mr. Wong is well versed in what makes jewelry sales tick in Asia and both of our coasts, he had never been to the Midwest! What better place to start than Peoria?
Kent and Caryl spent the morning touring our stores and picking the brains of our sales, inventory, and marketing departments. This wasn’t just a PR visit for Mr. Wong. Unpretentious and down-to-earth, he is an avid collector of knowledge and he was here to gain as much as he could from each of us.
Being able to communicate our guests’ wants and needs to our industry partners is of paramount importance to the family at Bremer Jewelry. It was wonderfully affirming to have Kent and Caryl here in person listening carefully to our team members’ feedback! Chow Tai Fook is committed to supporting and improving the already amazing Hearts On Fire® brand.
Needless to say, it was a very special moment for the Bremer Family! We look forward to continuing and expanding our great partnership with Hearts On Fire.
