Trey Bailey of Bailey’s Fine Jewelry has been named a Triangle Business Journal (TBJ) 40 Under 40 winner. Each year the Triangle’s largest business publication recognizes outstanding professionals under the age of 40 for their contributions to their organizations and to the community. Six judges from the local business community and TBJ leaders pored over about 200 nominations to come up with the final list of 40 winners in the 2018 class.
Bailey, 38, represents the third generation of a family owned-and-operated jewelry store that began with one 11-foot-wide location in eastern North Carolina, but has expanded to four under his leadership, including a renovated and expanded 11,000 sq. foot store in Raleigh’s Cameron Village. Bailey links past and present by maintaining dedication to quality while bringing in fresh ideas to keep Bailey’s competitive in today’s retail environment. He also places a heavy emphasis on giving back to the local communities where Bailey’s operates, both on a personal and professional level.
“It’s an incredible honor to be selected for the TBJ’s 40 Under 40 list,” said Bailey. “To see my name next to the some of the best and brightest in the Triangle is truly humbling. The focus on community service is especially important to me as it’s one of the core values of our company.”
The 40 honorees will be recognized at an awards luncheon June 28 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary. The winners will also be profiled in a special section of the TBJ that will be published in its June 29 subscriber edition.
