Former Erica Courtney CEO Adam Graham has been named vice president of Black, Starr & Frost and managing director of its Newport Beach, Calif., store.
In addition to his work at Erica Courtney, Graham has held executive-level positions at the American Gem Trade Association, Saks Fifth Avenue, the Rapaport Group, and the American Gem Society.
Jeweler Alfredo J. Molina bought the storied 205-year-old brand, one of the oldest jewelers in America, in 2006. In a statement, Molina said that Graham will be a key addition to the brand as it expands to other markets. A second store, in Phoenix, will open in mid-October.
