Citizen was named Supplier of the Year at the inaugural Company of Master Jewellers’ UK Jewellery Business Conference in Birmingham this week, after retailers voted for it in the run-up to the day-long event.
The watch brand scooped the Supplier Award and was represented on the night by Helen Molloy of Forum Jewellers in Dorset, who came to the stage to accept the award from Stephen Hughes, president of the CMJ.
Citizen UK’s managing director Alan Mace said of the news: “We feel very humbled to be the first recipient of this inaugural CMJ Supplier Award and a big thank you from Team Citizen to all our CMJ stockists.
“CMJ Members have been integral to our success and in future plans for growing the Citizen Eco-Drive brand."
The CMJ Supplier of the Year was voted for by CMJ retailers in the run up to the UK Jewellery Business Conference and presented on the Tuesday night at the conference in Birmingham. Citizen beat finalists that included jewellery suppliers Brown & Newirth, Ti Sento and Gemex.
CMJ’s Retailer of the Year award was also presented on the night, to Wakefields of Horsham.
