The People of Ultimate Trading

Todd Knichel - President
After graduating Rutger's University and leaving Seton Hall Law School in 1989, Todd joined Ultimate Trading and created a new retail division called QuickSilver Jewelry. He developed multiple shopping mall kiosk locations located throughout NY & NJ. Todd simultaneously began to expand and grow UTC's wholesale business through domestic manufacturing. This was also a way for him to gain control of production and quality and ensure that the customer's needs were consistently met.

In 1995 he became an equity partner of UTC. Over the next 15 years he consistently grew UTC's business by expanding into all categories of jewelry and building long standing relationships in the industry. During this period, domestic manufacturing was paired with worldwide importing and fulfillment services. These additions nicely rounded out UTC's capabilities and have kept the company both relevant and competitive in the market place for the past 20+ years.

In 2009, Todd took full ownership of Ultimate Trading Corporation and continues to move the company steadily, stably and successfully into the future.
