Beaverbrooks

Beaverbrooks managing director, Anna Blackburn, and chairman, Mark Adlestone, are proving to be a formidable duo.

Together, they ensure the business stays true to its roots, gives generously to charity and delivers impressive results.

Beaverbrooks continues to flourish even during uncertain times on the British high street, with the last accounts filed with Companies House revealing a fifth consecutive year of sales growth for the business.
During the year ending March 2019, the family-run multiple recorded a 2.9% lift in turnover from £126.5m to £127.4m.

“These results demonstrate that the combination of a sound strategy and continued investment in people, product and our presence on the high street can deliver sustained success,” says the retailer’s managing director, Anna Blackburn. “The jewellery market is highly competitive, but we firmly believe that the experience of coming into a high street store adds value to our customers.”

As part of its mission to ‘enrich lives’, Beaverbrooks donates 20% of retained profits to charity and in the last financial year donated £1.265m.

Beaverbrooks also continues to be a firm that the nation loves to work for. At The Sunday Times ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ awards, the jeweller won a trio of accolades as it was named the best mid-sized retailer and ranked number nine in the overall list. Adelstone and Blackburn were also identified as the UK’s ‘Best Leaders’.
