I established my first business at the age of 21. Subsequently, joined by business partners, all of us well under 30, we incorporated a company and established an export import agency, consultancy fee for service and distribution company servicing the Pacific Islands and New Zealand. We set out to change the world but instead we changed a few lives and we certainly did that. The businesses grew with three overseas branches ultimately and jewellery was among the many product lines handled by our company. Our product range was huge. From houses to Caterpillar tractors to honey, greeting cards, stationery, food, fashion, perfume, mattresses, shop fittings and much much more. Times changed and all these young men and women moved on but not before we had shuttled our clients into countries where they had feared to tread. I was destined to end up in the jewellery industry. By chance, the very first house my wife and I bought was from a manufacturing jeweller, unknown to us. It had been his family’s beach house. Then, due to contacts from my previous business, I ended up in the Australian Jewellery Industry with all it’s ups and downs, now some 40 years ago. I started my working life in the steel industry and in amongst all of this ended up in Merchant Banking in two countries. However, my real passion is for what we do which is sourcing and transacting business in the service of our clients, be it our own product or that of our agency principles. I am constantly looking to source better and better reliable and good looking product for you, our clients. The company is owned by my wife Sue and I and we have a very small efficient team to assist us.
