Chairman and CEO The Molina Group – Phoenix, Arizona

International jeweler Alfredo J. Molina is chairman and CEO of the Molina Group, based in Phoenix, Arizona. Mr. Molina was able to secure the $30 million, historic Archduke Joseph Diamond, the world’s twelfth largest perfect white diamond, earning him guest appearances on numerous television programs throughout the country. He opened Molina Fine Jewelers, his own exquisite jewelry salon, in Arizona in 1987. In October 2006, he became the proprietor of Black, Starr & Frost, America’s first premiere jeweler since 1810 and one of the most venerable American jewelers during the nineteenth and twentieth century’s. Mr. Molina’s lineage of master jewelers dates back to seventeenth century Italy. He was born in Cuba, and when the revolution forced his family to flee the grip of communism, he came to America and learned the diamond and gemstone business from his grandfather. Molina Fine Jewelers has built an unparalleled reputation, and Mr. Molina is considered one of the nation’s most prestigious jewelers. In December 2005, Mr. Molina was honored in Washington, DC as one of Seven Caring Americans and was inducted into the Frederick Douglass Museum & Hall of Fame for Caring Americans on Capitol Hill. Mr. Molina, his wife, Lisa, and their four children devote time and many resources to the Arizona and California communities. They have dedicated their lives to the service of others. Through their generous sponsorship and support of local and national charities, they seek to improve the lives of the less fortunate.
