Princeton, N.J.--Hamilton Jewelers is adding a new generation to its business.

On June 1, Andrew Siegel will join the family-owned company--which has three locations: one in Princeton, New Jersey, one in Palm Beach, Florida, and one in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, according to its website--as the director of business strategy and operations.

Siegel represents the fourth generation of his family to work at the jewelry store.

Hamilton Jewelers was founded in 1912. Siegel’s great-grandfather, Irving Siegel, joined the store in 1927. He was followed by his son, Martin Siegel, in 1955.

In 1982, Hank Siegel came to Hamilton Jewelers, where he currently serves as president.

Andrew Siegel comes from a background in sales effectiveness and business strategy. After graduating from Emory University in 2010, he was recruited by the Alexander Group, a revenue growth consulting firm.

During his tenure there, Siegel worked with more than 40 clients.

Of bringing a millennial perspective to Hamilton Jewelers, Siegel explained, “I grew up in a generation that embraces having the world at our fingertips, where speed and digitization can sometimes dilute the intimate experience of our industry. At the same time, we covet personalization in all aspects of our lives.

“There is a renaissance to discover customization, which blends effortlessly with the craftsmanship of Hamilton artisans. My goal is to weave the convenience of global interaction with the personal spirit and quality experience that clients appreciate and have come to expect from Hamilton.”

In addition to bringing a new point-of-view, Siegel emphasized his desire to contribute to the current company culture at Hamilton.

“I am honored to join Hamilton as the fourth generation in the business, and to preserve our unique attributes in the marketplace while helping us continue to innovate in a changing world, just as my great-grandfather, grandfather, and father have done before me,” he said. “Hamilton’s unique combination of national recognition and family ownership provide a fantastic opportunity for the growth of our brand, and I look forward to carrying on our 105-year-old core values of relationships, responsibility, entrepreneurship, expertise, enduring value, integrity, and distinctive service.”
