video: Alex and Ani CEO Speaks at Bryant’s World Trade Day Kickoff Event
Wednesday, June 15, 2011
The kickoff event launched the 26th annual World Trade Day held at George E. Bello Center on Bryant University. The full day program runs today at Bryant.
"Made in RI"
Feroce’s remarks focused on the role Alex and Ani is playing in bringing innovation and thus reinvigoration to Rhode Island’s jewelry industry. He also spoke about the company’s commitment to the highest manufacturing standards, “the statement ‘made in America’ is a promise of quality again – and a statement, like ‘made in Rhode Island,’ to be uttered with pride again.”
That panel includes: Helen Lesieur, VP, Global Trade Services, RBS Citizens, N.A. - GTS Americas, Roger Hood, Partner, Duffy & Sweeney, Ken White, International Account Manager, UPS, and Christian Kalweit, Head of US Operations, Eurobridge, Inc.
But for those gathered at the reception, Mr. Feroce remained focused on what he termed “slightly more esoteric matters.”
The brand’s core point of differentiation – positive energy has been infused into the jewelry’s design, the brand’s message and the company’s culture by its founder and owner, Carolyn Rafaelian.
Bryant University and the John H. Chafee Center for International Business will host World Trade Day against a theme, “Competing Beyond Borders,” and its array of speakers have attracted executives and managers from companies of all sizes throughout the United States and around the world.
