The National Association of Jewellers has confirmed that Robert Eden is to leave at the beginning of April.
Eden joined the NAJ last year on a one year fixed contract as the first head of membership and membership services. His role was focused on building the membership of the association across all industry sectors from manufacturing to retail.
On his departure, NAJ chief executive officer, Michael Rawlinson, comments: “Robert has helped us to establish a solid base for the membership structure for the new association, and delivered what we have asked of him. We thank him for his dedication in completing these projects.”
The Association will make a further announcement regarding its future structure and plans in due course.
Eden has no firm plans for his next role in the UK jewellery industry, and is currently looking for new opportunities.
