Cary Magazine Movers & Shakers: Trey Bailey

Position: Third-generation co-owner of Bailey’s Fine Jewelry; the company has five stores and six Pandora shops. Its A Time to Give program offers free watch battery replacements in exchange for donations to a local charity, and has raised $230,000 to date. In Share the Love, Bailey’s donates 360 meals to feed a North Carolina family for each ring purchased from the Bailey’s Signature Collection.

Favorite accomplishment: “I came up with the idea of leaving Bailey Boxes all over town with jewelry in them — free, no strings attached. It made national news. We call (this marketing campaign) Finders Keepers.”

Motivation: “Just simply try to be the best person I can be, and the best leader/manager I can be, every day.”

Guiding philosophy: “Inch by inch, life is a cinch. Don’t over-complicate things.”

Fun fact: “In my early 20s I recorded an album with multi-platinum recording artist Robert Sledge from Ben Folds Five.”

Advice: “Be intentional and disciplined.”
