Aurafin promotes David Meleski to CEO

David Meleski has been promoted to the position of chief executive officer of Aurafin LLC, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. He will also remain president of fine-karat gold manufacturer and distributor, a position he has held for the past five years.

Meleski will report directly to the Aurafin Board of Directors, led by chairman Michael Gusky and include members of Norwest Equity Partners. Gusky, who founded the company in 1982, made the appointment.

“As the founder and chairman of the company I take great pride in having the opportunity to hand-select my successor as chief executive officer, a role I fulfilled for 25 years since the inception of Aurafin” Gusky said. “More so, I am delighted to present Dave with this new challenge where he can use his vast experience and knowledge to lead Aurafin.”

Meleski began his career at Aurafin fourteen years ago as vice president of sales.

“This is a great vote of confidence from the Board of Directors and our investors for our senior management, our industry and our future, not just for me personally,” Meleski said.
