Ann Arnold Joins Day’s Jewelers Board of Directors

She joins former owners Kathy and Jeff Corey.

Industry veteran and leader Ann Arnold will be the third member of Day’s Jewelers board of directors.
Waterville, Maine—Day’s Jewelers has announced the appointment of Ann Arnold to its board of directors.

Day’s became 100 percent employee-owned in November when Jeff and Kathy Corey sold the company under an Employee Stock Ownership Plan.

Their son, Joseph Corey, was named president of the company last April, and will stay in that position.

Kathy and Jeff will serve on the board of directors, with Arnold as the third member.

Arnold is a longtime jewelry industry leader and certified public accountant.

Her experience in the jewelry business started at a young age, working at her family’s jewelry manufacturing business, Lieberfarb.

She currently serves as the chief strategy officer at Buyer’s Intelligence Group, helping jewelers manage their inventory and communication more efficiently through data analysis.

Arnold served as president of the Women’s Jewelry Association in 2006 after serving on numerous committees and as treasurer.

She has since served on many other jewelry industry boards, including currently holding the role of chair of the Jewelers Board of Trade and executive board member of the Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America (MJSA).

The 24 Karat Club of the City of New York inducted Arnold as a member in 2006. She served as its treasurer from 2012-2014 and is currently a board member.

In addition to her work in the industry, Arnold also joined the board of the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation and serves as its treasurer.

In 2019, Arnold and her sister, jewelry designer Isabella Fiske, founded the Mark Schonwetter Holocaust Education Foundation in honor of their father, a Holocaust survivor. It raises funds to give grants to schools nationwide in support of Holocaust education.

Arnold is also a public speaker and best-selling author, having written “Together: A Journey for Survival,” based on her family’s history with Holocaust survival.

“I’m thrilled to join Day’s,” she said. “I’ve known Jeff and Kathy Corey for many years. Day’s is such a well-respected company in the jewelry industry. I hope to help the company dive into our future by providing tactical and strategic thinking skills that I’ve learned over my many years in this wonderful industry.”

Maine-based Day’s Jewelers was founded by the Davidson brothers in Portland in 1914 and employs approximately 140 people in Maine and New Hampshire.

Kathy and Jeff Corey purchased Day’s from the original founders in 1988.
