Liz Aldridge joins diamond jewellery brand after 16 years at Thien Po.
Diamond jewellery wholesale company Gemsone UK has hired Liz Aldridge as sales director for the South and Southeast.
Aldridge joins Gemsone UK from international jewellery company Thien Po, where she held the position of sales manager for the past 16 years.
She will be responsible for building sales for the diamond jewellery brand in the South and Southeast, although her territory will not include central London or the Home Counties.
Aldridge said that it was the "inventive mix of marketing and fine jewellery" that attracted her to the position at Gemsone, which launched in the UK last year.
Gemsone UK sales director David Gilbert described Aldridge as a "talented and well-connected communicator". Her appointment takes the UK team at Gemsone to three, but Gilbert said that the team is set to expand again and will have five members of staff by the end of the year.
