Achieving a BSc Psychology, I worked in publishing & advertising until 1988 joining Swatch to buy 750k watches a year and manage a £3m marketing budget.
In 1992 I set up marketing & pr company, Junction Marketing, working exclusively in the watch & jewellery industry. 1998 saw us bought out by Goldsmiths Group, and transformed into one of the most successful watch distribution companies of the noughties, SpringColour. As Operations Director handling Guess, Versace, Lacoste, Nina Ricci and Tommy Hilfiger, I enjoyed a 10 year wave of success.
I joined CMJ in 2010 to support the retail members and to develop the group services. Nine years on this is the best job I have ever had. I work with amazing retailers & suppliers, and the best team ever; I am thankful every day to be part of this great industry
