Teresa Timberlake founded TLKE in 2012 with one goal: bringing big US brands to the UK and European markets.
Now the ever-expanding UK jewellery and watch distributor works with the likes of Lauren Ralph Lauren, DKNY, Anne Klein and Juicy Couture.
Giving an insight into what it is like working with Teresa, as well as how the company has fared in the last year, new sales and marketing executive Sophie Miller says in nominating her for the Professional Jeweller Power List: “I began to work for TLKE in July of 2020 and have been incredibly fortunate to work closely with Teresa throughout my time with the company.
“TLKE has faced numerous issues in the past year due to the impact of Covid on retail and recent implications with Brexit.
“Teresa has guided the team through these challenges demonstrating her resilience and providing regular support. I feel incredibly grateful to have such an inspirational boss and mentor.”
