Glenn, Rudolph named to Jewelers Mutual board of directors

Hugh Glenn, president of Hugh Glenn Corp., New York City, and Carl J. Rudolph, an insurance executive, were elected to Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company’s board of directors.

Hugh Glenn Corp., formed in 1984, is the American distributor for the Swiss Luxury watch brand, Cyma. He is past president of the 24 Karat Club of the City of New York and former chairman and director of the Jewelers’ Security Alliance, as well as other jewelry organizations. He received the Humanitarian Award from the National Conference of Christians and Jews and the Human Relations Award from the American Jewish Committee. In 1999, Glenn and Yves Kamioner created Sequoia, a precious jewelry collection designed by Kamioner. His 39-year career includes positions with Omega Watch USA, Baume & Mercier, Norman M. Morris Corp., and Zale Corp.

“Hugh’s passion for fine timepieces and his experience as a watch distributor working with retail jewelers will be invaluable on our board,” said Ron Harder, Jewelers Mutual president and CEO.

The JM board also elected Carl Rudolph, a certified public accountant with a master’s degree in business administration. Rudolph recently completed a 31-year career at Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, a Fortune 500 fraternal services organization based in Appleton, Wis., and Minneapolis, Minn.

During his tenure at Thrivent, Rudolph held positions as senior financial advisor, controller, and chief financial officer. He is now a financial consultant for various companies and organizations.

“Jewelers make up the majority of our board, so Carl’s addition provides an experienced insurance and financial perspective as we identify new products and services to offer the jewelry industry,” Harder said.
