Welcome to the third annual Professional Jeweller Power List — an initiative launched two years ago to celebrate the movers and shakers in the UK jewellery trade.
The jewellery trade is inundated with inspiring and innovative individuals who, even during this past year, have been busy blazing a trail and playing their part to keep business booming come rain or shine.
It goes without saying that it has not been an easy time to be working within the UK jewellery sector, but thankfully the trade is full of talented individuals who continue to make it sparkle and weather the storm.
In recognition of this, we wanted to shine a light on the people working for jewellery retailers and suppliers who are pushing boundaries in the market.
Wherever you look in the country there are examples of jewellery retailers and suppliers doing a fantastic job for their clients.
Whether it’s the personal service they offer, the care and attention they pay to helping customers find the right solution, or their appetite to provide as much product choice as possible, they are at the forefront of the ever-changing retail landscape.
The Power List is an opportunity to recognise some of the individuals behind those organisations and highlight the commendable and tireless work they do.
Once again, we were flooded with nominations from the minute we launched the Power List online – and ended up receiving a record number of entries.
To raise spirits in light of the pandemic, many retailers wrote in to put forward suppliers, while brands were quick to commend individuals from award-winning independents and multiples.
These nominations were for individuals worthy of being included in one of five categories: Retail Titans, Brand Champions, Inspiring Independents, Market Movers, and Rising Stars.
While it was hard to whittle the list down to just six per category, we believe the people on the following pages deserve recognition for the innovative work they do.
From CEOs and MDs to unsung heroes working in customer service, design and on the road, the 2021 Power List elevates the individuals inspiring their businesses to reach new heights in a challenging and competitive environment.
