A MINT DEPARTURE
An article in the March 23rd Wall Street Journal notes:
"The dot-com world has finally found an executive who really
knows how to mint money."
"Philip Deihl, director of the U.S. Mint, is leaving to run
Zale.com after helping turn his corner of the federal
bureaucracy into a savvy consumer marketer. The
online jewelry-sales arm of Zale Corp., of Irving, Texas,
is expected to name him President today."
"Though he is eager to get to Zale.com, he concedes he
has one possible shortcoming: He wears almost no
jewelry himself. "I'm too old-fashioned to wear anything
like an ear stud or nose ring," he jokes, "though working
at a dot-com may change that."
