Michael Schechter, an industry veteran who has long advocated for the jewelry business to up its tech game, has joined software company BOSS Logics as director of business development.
In his new role, Schechter will focus on account and partner outreach as well as product strategy development.
Schechter has over two decades of experience in the jewelry industry. He ran tech operations for his family business, Honora, until it was purchased by Richline Group in 2013.
Schechter served as the primary business manager for the Richline’s e-commerce website Gemvara, where he partnered with retailers like Helzberg Diamonds, Macy’s, and Reeds Jewelers.
He has also occasionally written for JCK.
“BOSS Logics connects vendors with their retailers to create better digital opportunities and better data,” Schechter tells JCK. “It builds on what I’ve been doing my whole career, as far as merging jewelry and technology.”
“Michael brings a unique industry point of view, and his deep roots in the jewelry industry mean that he literally grew up with the DNA of the industry around him,” said Zach Lipsky, founder and CEO of BOSS Logics, in a statement.
