Following an extensive search for an
editor in chief with the perfect mix of jewelry industry expertise and
publishing excellence, TMG has named Victoria Gomelsky to helm JCK magazine, the 140-year-old industry bible.
Ms. Gomelsky will oversee JCK’s
editorial staff and manage the content strategy for JCK magazine,
JCKonline.com and JCK’s digital extensions.
Victoria has more than 10 years of
experience in covering this luxury b2b category. Prior to JCK, she
served for five years as editor in chief of Couture International Jeweler,
a Geneva-based trade journal owned by Nielsen Co. and targeted to retailers of
high-end jewelry and watches. The role required her to travel the world in
search of stories spotlighting business and design trends shaping the global
luxury goods industry. Before that, she was a senior editor at National
Jeweler, a trade publication based in New York. Ms. Gomelsky currently
divides her time between Los Angeles and New York.
In 2007, Victoria was named Trade
Press Editor of the Year by the Jewelry Information Center in New York for
exceptional coverage of the fine jewelry and watch industries. She began
writing for the special sections of the International Herald Tribune in
2006, specializing in watches, jewelry and luxury gifts. That same year, she
won the annual award in Editorial & Reporting at the Women’s Jewelry
Association Awards For Excellence.
“With Vic at the helm, JCK is
positioned to take this brand to new heights of excellence in print and
online,” said Kim Caviness, TMG’s vice president, content.
“She is not only an award-winning writer and editor, but she also understands
the ins and outs of the jewelry industry, a truly unique and complex segment in
the marketplace. We’re so thrilled to have her on our team.”
Reed Exhibitions, which acquired JCK magazine and
its online extensions from its sister company, Reed Business Information,
tapped TMG to publish JCK magazine and JCKonline.com on its behalf.
