Sonia Menezes, head of brand development with award-winning jewellery brand Clogau, has left the business after almost 10 years with the company, to pursue new opportunities.
Menezes, who’s remit included responsibility for all the brand’s design and marketing activities, joined Clogau in May 2010 from jewellery brand Hot Diamonds.
Prior to this Menezes worked in the drinks industry for two of the world’s largest producers of beers and spirits, Diageo and Bacardi Martini Ltd.
During Menezes’ tenure with Clogau, the brand opened several of its own mono-brand stores, and took on an increasingly consumer-facing role, working with brand ambassadors including Gethin Jones and collaborating with organisations such as Historic Royal Palaces and fashion designer David Emanuel.
Commenting on Menezes departure, Clogau managing director Ben Roberts, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sonia for all her hard work with the brand. She has been a valuable member of the team and will be missed by everyone in the business. We would like to wish her all the best in her future endeavours.”
Menezes added: “I’ve enjoyed my years at Clogau, taking the brand through two major re-brands and nine years of new collections, campaigns and collaborations. I wish the team all the best for a wonderful future.”
