Ollie Keene Joins Brodkey’s as CEO

Industry veteran Ollie Keene has been named CEO of Brodkey’s, a nine-store chain based in Omaha, Neb.

Keene was mostly recently a merchandise and supply chain executive at Michael Hill Jewelers and senior vice president at Helzberg Diamonds.

“I’m excited to get back to my roots, not only my Midwest roots, but my retail roots – in fact my first job in the industry was in retail at Helzberg Diamonds, another family owned business,” Keene said in a statement. 

Brodkey’s dates back to 1880.
