Joseph Esposito Elected as MJSA Chair

National Chain Group’s Joseph Esposito (pictured) has been elected chair of the board of directors of the Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA).

He succeeds Steven A. Cipolla, president of National Chain Group, who will now become chair of the MJSA Education Foundation. Cipolla had served as board chair since 2016.

Esposito, the executive vice president of National Chain Group, first came into the industry as an apprentice in 1979. In 1988, he formed Prime Time Manufacturing, where he served as president for nearly 20 years. Berkshire Hathaway–owned Richline Group purchased Prime Time in 2007.

Esposito ran Richline’s global manufacturing for 12 years before joining National Chain.

Serving with him will be David Siminski, vice president of sales and marketing at United Precious Metal Refining, who has been elected vice chair.

In addition, MJSA announced that Molly Bell, executive vice president of Rio Grande, has stepped down from its board after serving for eight years; Ann Arnold, chief strategy officer for the Buyer’s Intelligence Group, is now an officer at large; and Arien Gessner, president of Rio Grande, was elected to a three-year term as director.
