Jordan Speaks to Top Industry Insiders; Speaking at GIA Event in Early October
It has been a busy start to fall for Jordan Tabach-Bank, owner and CEO of Beverly Loan Co. and New York Loan Co., which is slated to open next spring. Jordan recently spoke at the Pawnshop Consulting Group Annual Symposium, the largest gathering of industry minds all year. The conference took place at the Ritz Carlton in the Cayman Islands Sept. 9-14.
Jordan delivered a one-hour talk to the industry’s leading pawnbrokers on the secrets to Beverly Loan’s success. Jordan discussed how to set up a business to attract upscale clients, and how to run successful marketing and advertising campaigns for these clients. Industry leaders also questioned Jordan about how to cater to and maintain high-end pawn clientele.
“The event went extremely well,” Jordan said. “There was a lot of interest in how Beverly Loan has managed to be the premier high-end pawn shop in the United States for the past 75 years.”
Jordan also shared some of the keys to Beverly Loan’s longstanding success and reputation for lending to white collar borrowers. One of those secrets is maintaining customer confidentiality, Jordan said. Beverly Loan carefully safeguards personal information, never reveals the identity of its clientele, and offers discreet private offices to conduct loan transactions.
The second key to success is hiring the best and the brightest, Jordan said. “We only hire certified gemologists who truly know the worth of the collateral presented to them, and who really understand the need for discretion,” he said.
Jordan said industry leaders were also interested in Beverly Loan’s business growth, particularly with its expansion to New York City. Beverly Loan will open an East Coast office under the name New York Loan Co. in early 2013.
Speaking at GIA Career Event in October
Jordan is speaking at an upcoming event put on by the Gemological Institute of America in October. The event is a career fair for the jewelry industry, highlighting the high demand for jobs in this unique industry.
The career fair will take place at GIA’s world headquarters in Carlsbad, Calif., on Oct. 5.
Jordan is speaking during the opening session about how to be successful in the industry, addressing an audience of several hundred gemologists. The industry was valued at more than $160 billion 2011, according to Donna Baker, president and CEO of GIA.
After Jordan’s address, he will serve on a panel alongside Cathryn Ramirez, group director of Tiffany & Co., and other industry leaders. The panel, titled “Job Success in Today’s Market,” will be hosted by Donna Baker.
Jordan will provide insights to gemologists about the current state of the jewelry industry, and discuss the need to think out of the box. He will also discuss the significance of the fact that the industry is growing and working at a pawn shop would prove to be a great option for any GIA graduate.
“I’m truly looking forward to it,” Jordan said. “It’s especially a great opportunity seeing that Beverly Loan Co. is currently hiring new gemologists in both its Beverly Hills and New York locations.”
The event will feature on-the-spot interviews with some of the top companies in the industry, including Montblanc, Helzberg Diamonds, Tiffany & Co., and Zale Corporation.
Jordan is a sought-after speaker, and has been featured on E! Entertainment Television, Good Morning America, Today Show, CNN, and numerous other media outlets.
GIA hosted its first jewelry career fair in 1991 in Santa Monica, Calif., and has held the events in Bangalore, Las Vegas, Mumbai, New York, and elsewhere around the world.
