May 19, 2011 --

Chamilia®, the US based personalized fine jewelry company recognized for its exceptional innovation and style, today announced that Founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Design Officer Killian Rieder, along with Founder and Chairman of the Board Jeff Julkowski and Executive Vice President, Chief Business Development Officer Michael Flaherty, have all been named co-finalists in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2011 Upper Midwest Awards Competition.

According to Ernst & Young LLP, the awards program recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Rieder, Julkowski and Flaherty were selected as finalists from nearly 40 nominations by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special gala event on June 15 at the Frontier Airlines Center in Milwaukee.

“To be recognized as finalists in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Competition is a testament to the diligence of the entire Chamilia team and our extraordinary growth as a company,” said Rieder. “It is an honor to receive this nomination which captures the entrepreneurial spirit of Chamilia.”

Rieder excelled as a designer within the New York fashion industry before founding Chamilia with her husband, Julkowski in 2002. The couple began selling their products at trade shows across the country and pursuing coveted retailers in a highly competitive industry. Flaherty joined the successful husband and wife team in 2006 with a vision for premium global branding and distribution. Today, Chamilia is one of the fastest growing fashion brands in the personalized jewelry category, with over 4,000 points of global distribution and employing team members in the Americas, Europe, and Asia with continued domestic and international expansion.

Chamilia offers an extensive bead collection featuring contemporary designs, fashionable color combinations and hand-crafted detail, made from materials including Swarovski® Elements, Italian Murano glass, sterling silver and 14 karat gold. This season, silk and braided-leather designs have been added to Chamilia’s expanding line of companion bracelets, necklaces and earrings.
