Matthew Gordy Stuller was born in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1951. He attended Our Lady of Fatima High School, where in his junior year he began an afterschool job doing part-time work for a local jeweler. Within a year, he had worked his way into the business of doing jewelry repair and sales, and in his senior year he began his own business in a corner office of his father's orthodontic suite.
At the age of 19, he developed his first wholesale line and began traveling the state of Louisiana developing business connections. Frustrated with the industry's slow delivery and service, he developed a business philosophy and program of supplying quality merchandise and service with nextday delivery.
Today, Matthew Stuller is the Founder and Chairman of Stuller Settings Inc., one of the largest jewelry manufacturing and distributing firms in the United States, and an industry leader in the domestic and international wholesale jewelry sector.
Mr. Stuller is a member of the Young Presidents Organization, the Sons of the American Revolution, and the 24 Karat Club of the Southeastern United States; Member of the Board of Directors, The Jewelers Vigilance Committee; Member of the Board, Jewelry Information Center; Member of the Board of Directors of the University of Southwestern Louisiana Foundation; Board Member, U.S. Senate Productivity and Innovation Award; and Member, GIA Vision 2000. His past memberships include Member of the Board of Directors, Jewelers Board of Trade; and Member of the Board, Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce. Awards and honors he has received include the 1995 Entrepreneur Of The Year award in the Wholesale/Distribution category in the state of Louisiana, which qualified him to become a National Entrepreneur Of The Year award winner.
