Paul Albert Liguori, 64, chief operating officer for Ballet Jewels, died of gall bladder cancer Wednesday, Aug. 1, at Brandywine Hall in West Chester.
Since 2008, Mr. Liguori had been with Ballet Jewels L.L.C., a Kearny, N.J., firm that designs and markets costume jewelry.
Previously, he had been an executive of American Can Co. as well as a pharmaceutical company and several apparel companies, including Crystal Brands, Warnaco Group Inc., and Gitano Jeans. Before joining Ballet, Mr. Liguori was with Scunci, a manufacturer of hair accessories. He was a member of the Greater Philadelphia Senior Executive Group.
"His father spent his entire career with RCA. Paul was a different generation," said his wife, Nancy Newcomb Liguori. "He was a risk-taker and liked the challenge of helping a company restructure."
