Company’s director of promotion steps down after 12 years in role.
The Goldsmiths’ Company’s director of promotions Paul Dyson is set to step down from his role this autumn after 12 years at the London-based organisation.
The Goldsmiths’ Company said that Paul "has brought an energy and passion to every activity undertaken in his role, and he will be missed enormously". He is set to leave at the end of October to pursue other interests.
During his tenure at Goldsmiths’ Hall Dyson has been credited with raising the profile of the Goldsmiths’ Company with the media, general public and in the eyes of all silversmiths and jewellers in the UK.
His work has covered the staging of exhibitions and events at Goldsmiths’ Hall as well as a complete review of the Goldsmiths’ Company’s brand identity, which was refreshed and revitalised for a modern audience.
Exhibitions organised by Dyson included Gold: Power and Allure in 2012 and Treasures of the English Church: Sacred Gold and Silver 800-2000 in 2008, both of which achieved record numbers of visitors to the Hall.
Dyson has also established a loyal following for the annual Goldsmiths’ Fair, which he has also helped to organise, in turn bringing in impressive year-on-year increases in sales. He was named a Professional Jeweller Hot 100 Business Big Shot in 2011 for his work with the Goldsmiths’ Fair.
