Jewelers Board of Trade President Anthony Capuano (pictured) is retiring after a little less than two years as president of the organization and a total of 17 years of service to the organization.
Providence, R.I.--The Jewelers Board of Trade announced Friday that after several months out on medical leave, President Anthony Capuano is retiring.

Immediate past JBT board Chair Richard Weisenfeld will continue in his role as acting president. 

Capuano became JBT president in August 2016, taking over for Dione Kenyon, who retired after 14 years in the role.

He joined the JBT after eight years with HSBC Bank N.A., a major lender to the jewelry industry. 

He also held positions at Scotia Mocatta and Bank of America and, at the time of his hire, had served on the JBT board of directors for 15 years.

Capuano also had memberships in the International Precious Metals Institute, Providence Jewelers Club and Boston Jewelers Club.

“We would like to thank Tony for his service to the Jewelers Board of Trade and the jewelry industry. Tony charted a legacy for the organization that will benefit JBT for many years to come.  We wish him well in the future,” current board Chair Todd Wolleman said in a statement from the JBT.
