In Retail Jeweller’s Rising Stars 30 Under 30 supplement we present the amazing young talent that exists in the industry. Here we look at Kerry Holloway.
DOB 17/04/87 Age 29
Kerry Holloway began her retail career at the age of 16, working part-time for Sports Direct, and then other big high street names, including Oasis and Pret-a-Manger, alongside her studies (she has a degree in Business Management). After graduating, Holloway joined prestigious independent retail jeweller Prestons as a sales assistant in 2010. She says that, from early on at Prestons, it was obvious that she had found the right career, as she enjoys working with interesting products and dealing with people.
In 2012, Holloway was promoted to assistant manager of Prestons’ standalone Rolex Boutique in Leeds (one of only three standalone Rolex boutiques in the UK). Then in 2015, when Prestons opened up in Guildford, Surrey, Holloway applied for the job of store manager and has been there ever since, helping to ensure that the store has had a great first year. “I have a fantastic team who are innovative and focused, and we’re very excited to see what the next year brings,” she says.
