Jewelry retailer HOTJ elects new BOD

Jul '07
House of Taylor Jewelry Inc announced that John Moretz has been elected to the company's board of directors.

Moretz, 57, is chief executive officer of GoldToeMoretz, LLC, a global leader in the hosiery industry with a portfolio of brands including Gold Toe, PowerSox, Kathy Ireland, New Balance and Under Armor.

Moretz fills a vacancy on House of Taylor Jewelry's five-member board following the resignation of Monty Abramov, 36, who will continue to serve as House of Taylor Jewelry's executive vice president and design director.

Based in Newton, North Carolina, GoldToeMoretz has a leading market position in the department store and specialty sporting goods channels, as well as a significant presence in the mass market channel.

Winner of Wal-Mart's Supplier of the Year award in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and Under Armor's Licensee of the Year award in 2006, Moretz also founded Moretz Marketing Inc, which manages lifestyle brands and has partnerships with Kathy Ireland, John Elway and Ronnie Lott.

"We are thrilled to welcome John to the board, along with the breadth of retail and marketing expertise he will bring to our organization," said Jack Abramov, president, chief executive officer and chairman of House of Taylor Jewelry.

"His leadership in growing GoldToeMoretz to become a global leader in the hosiery industry will serve our company well, as we continue to expand House of Taylor Jewelry's marketing and distribution channels."
