BREAKING NEWS: Terry Boot leaves CMJ after just 20 months in post

The Company of Master Jewellers’ (CMJ) chief executive Terry Boot has stepped down from his position after just 20 months in the role.

According to the CMJ, Boot, who has a history of financial roles, has decided to return to a career path dedicated to financial operations.

Helen Dimmick, a former retailer who has more than 20 years’ experience in the jewellery sector and has also worked with the organisation previously, will be joining the CMJ on a consultancy basis from April 23 to ensure a smooth handover.

CMJ chairman Michael Aldridge said: “Terry has been instrumental in restructuring and reorganising the CMJ and leaves the business in an extremely strong financial position with a solid foundation to move into the future.

“With recent changes within the business, we are taking this as an opportunity to look at how the organisation is structured.

“I’d like to thank Terry for all of his hard work and wish him the very best for the future. We are excited about the return of Helen Dimmick, who is the ideal person to provide consultancy to the business during this exciting time of transition.

“She brings more than 20 years’ experience in the jewellery sector and is a leading voice in business transformation and innovation.”

The news of Boot’s departure from the organisation comes a matter of weeks after it was announced that CMJ’s executive director of marketing and business development, Lucy Reece-Raybould, is to leave the business for a new career outside of the jewellery industry.
