Industry Veteran Heather Favali Joins Guild Consulting
The addition of Favali comes as the company launches two jewelry brands.
Heather Favali joined the company in September as vice president of business development, bringing more than 25 years of industry experience with some of the most well-known specialty jewelers.
Favali started her career in jewelry in 1991 at Zales Jewelers, where she spent 10 years working as both a sales associate and a store manager.
For the next 16 years, she worked as a sales associate and then store manager at Hannoush Jewelers before returning to Zales (now owned by Signet Jewelers) as a store and district manager.
Favali joins Guild Consulting as the company launches two jewelry brands, Diamond Guild and Guild585.
Diamond Guild is a line of “giftable” 14-karat gold and diamond jewelry while Guild585 is gold jewelry set with colored gemstones as well as on-trend gold pieces.
“I feel extremely fortunate to have Heather join the team and welcome her extensive and exceptional knowledge of the consumer market,” Guild Consulting founder and CEO Louis Karten said in a press release.
“She is already making a major difference at Guild Consulting and I know her vision and skills will be instrumental in the success of our new consumer brands.”
Founded in 1997, Guild Consulting specializes in strategic partnerships, acquisitions, asset sales and purchases, negotiating license agreements and management restructuring with major multinational jewelry and diamond companies.
