Manfredi Jewels owner gives speech

Withers Bergman will host Roberto Chiappelloni, owner of Greenwich’s Manfredi Jewels, as the latest featured guest of the international law firm’s “Inside the Entrepreneurial Mind” series. Mr. Chiappelloni opened his business in 1988, and has since built it into a global destination for timepiece collectors and enthusiasts.

The cocktail event will be held tonight, Nov. 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. at The JHouse Greenwich, 1114 East Putnam Avenue.

In 1988, Mr. Chiappelloni opened Manfredi Jewels in the hopes of sharing his passion for timepieces with the Greenwich community and the world, beginning with only one brand, IWC. Manfredi Jewels now carries over 30 brands of fine timepieces from around the world including Montblanc, Chopard, Omega, Franck Muller and F.P. Journe, among others.

“Though Roberto has led Manfredi Jewels for over 25 years, his entrepreneurial career actually began years earlier, when he became a restaurateur at age 24, not long after first moving to the U.S. from Italy, which makes his story a perfect fit for restaurant week here in Greenwich” said Phil DiGennaro, who will moderate the event. “During our discussion, attendees will hear directly from Roberto how he has identified and pursued opportunities and overcome specific challenges while building his family business.”

The “Inside the Entrepreneurial Mind” series features successful entrepreneurs who share their stories and thoughts on building a successful company. Each program is followed by a question-and-answer session, allowing attendees to hear first-hand from successful business leaders. Previous “Inside the Entrepreneurial Mind” events have hosted entrepreneurs including Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, principals of Winklevoss Capital, and Paul van Zyl, social entrepreneur and the co-founder of Maiyet.
