Omaha, NE--The Edge Retail Academy (ERA) announced that Lonnie Iannazzo of Vincent Anthony Jewelers, Tulsa, Ok, has been awarded the prestigious annual William “Wag” Wagner Business Excellence Award for 2022.

Vincent Anthony Jewelers is a premier jeweler that brings unique design and jewelry looks that can't be found just anywhere in Tulsa, the retail jewelry business consulting company said in a statement.

“The Vincent Anthony team identified opportunities and developed strategies with their Edge Retail Academy Business Advisor that allowed them to increase sales by 16%, raise gross profit by 21% and even increase his gross margin by 2%,” David Brown, ERA president, said.

Iannazzo added “with the help of Charleen, we are focused on our KPI's including having a good product turn, selling many items 5, 6 and even 10 times in a year.  You can imagine how this turnover impacts our bottom line.”

William (Wag) Wagner Business Excellence Award is given annually to a retail jeweler that has achieved the most exceptional business growth in the past 12 months. This is the fifth year that ERA presented the award.

The Award has two goals: To acknowledge business excellence from independent retailers and to honor the memory of long serving ERA Business Advisor William “Wag” Wagner. “His service, loyalty and advice went well beyond the expectations of our clients, his work colleagues and our company,” Brown said. Wagner passed away in September 2018.

Edge Retail Academy presented Iannazzo with the award and a check for $1,000.
