Leslie's has been awarded "Supplier of the Year" honors for the second consecutive year by members of the Independent Jewelers Organization. Richard Swetz, IJO chairman, presented the trophy to Andy Ban, Leslie's president, at the general session of the fall IJO show in Salt Lake City. The award recognizes the IJO supplier of the year for excellence of product and quality of service. Attending IJO jeweler members vote for the recipient in advance of the fall show when they register. The trophy becomes part of the winning company's display in the buying room for that show and the following spring Show. Leslie's, headquartered in Greenwich, Conn., is a category leader in the marketing of gold and platinum chain and other jewelry.
