Sylvie Jewelry is proud to announce a major organizational update. Steve Levine, the second son of founders Sylvie and Ian Levine, will be joining the company as Director of Operations. Gary Levine, who has served in the operational role for the last two years, will be making a lateral move to Director of Business Development, leveraging his vast expertise to further expand the brand’s reach.
Steve brings rich analytical and strategic proficiency gained from his time at Paramount Specialty Finance. Here he excelled in private lending, financial due diligence, and establishing strong client relationships for the firm. Prior to Paramount, Steve worked at SHIR Capital further expanding his experience into real estate, sourcing new deals and financial analysis. Steve received his undergraduate degree in Finance from Indiana University in 2020.
On joining the Sylvie team, Steve Levine added, “I am excited to join this incredible team and seek ways to add value to our growing brand. There is a great journey of growth and transformation ahead for Sylvie Jewelry. I am eager to play a pivotal role in that journey and honor the brand that my parents have created.”
Sylvie Levine said, “We’ve always embraced growth, innovation, and tradition in equal measure. We are also very family-oriented people – as a nuclear family and as a company. As Gary transitions into his new role, we are confident that he will lead our brand toward reaching new milestones. Bringing Steve onboard as the Director of Operations ensures that we are able to tap into his diverse background and ideas which will add significant value to our brand in a rapidly evolving industry and world.”
Gary Levine, reflecting on his new role and colleague, shared, “It is a natural part of our evolution to bring Steve into the family business. We are a close family and work incredibly well together. I am confident that together we will continue to grow the amazing brand our parents have built.” Gary oversaw the company’s 2022 rebranding which was accompanied by its ‘Shine On’ campaign, ushering in a new phase of the business as Sylvie looks to evolve its product offering and brand identity. In his new role, Gary will continue to head the creative end of the Company and oversee brand growth across its vast network of independent jewelry retailers.
As generational jewelers, Sylvie and Ian Levine continue their family’s rich legacy. They believe in the potential of both their sons to uphold the brand’s core values and vision of helping people celebrate life. This new development showcases their commitment to the future, emphasizing the family-centric ethos that has always been at the heart of Sylvie Jewelry.
