After ten years as CEO of The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ), Willie Hamilton has announced his departure from the business.

Commenting on the move, CMJ chairman, Michael Aldridge said: “Willie has now decided to pursue a career opportunity closer to his new home in the South of England and will announce his new appointment in due course”. Terry Boot, who has been working within the business as Head of Finance and Business Operations, will in the interim take control on a day to day basis until a successor has been appointed.

Aldridge commented: “During Willie Hamilton’s tenure, he has brought a wealth of previous industry experience in operations and marketing to CMJ and we wish him well and all the best for the future”.

CMJ has seen unprecedented successful growth during the past ten years to become the UK’s biggest and most influential jewellery buying group of independent retail jewellers across the UK and Ireland. CMJ currently has 158 members, representing over 400 individual shops across the UK and Ireland, with over 200 approved suppliers including some of the UK’s most successful high street jewellery and watch brands.

Hamilton said: “After ten years, I now have a new career ahead of me. I wish all the members and suppliers within the CMJ Group well, as they continue to build on the success of the UK’ biggest jewellery buying group.”
