Jewelers Mutual announces results of new board member elections


(NEENAH, Wis.) - During Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company’s 99th annual Policyholder Meeting, held earlier this year in Neenah, Wis., the company announced three new additions to the Board of Directors.

Newly-elected board members are:

Alex Barcados - President of C.D. Barcados Co. Ltd., a colored gemstone wholesale company located in Toronto, Canada.

Jon Bridge - Co-CEO and general counsel for Ben Bridge Jeweler, Inc., located in Seattle, Wash.

Craig Underwood - President of Underwood’s Jewelers in Fayetteville, Ark.

“You’ll notice that each new board member is an established member of the jewelry industry,” said Darwin Copeman, CPCU, president and CEO of Jewelers Mutual. “That’s unique to Jewelers Mutual and something we are very proud of. No other insurance company can say that it is more closely involved with the jewelry industry than Jewelers Mutual.”

As the company approaches its 100-year anniversary in 2013, it continues to build upon a strong foundation in the jewelry industry, offering insurance products to meet the needs of retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, designers, and repair operations. Earlier this year, the company announced the launch of its new Perfect Circle™ Jewelry Insurance to consumers for personal jewelry protection. The policy allows consumers to return to their local and trusted jeweler of choice to repair and replace their jewelry rather than utilizing a service prescribed by another insurer.
