Change in leadership for Showcase Jewellers

Showcase Jewellers have confirmed that chief financial officer Jorge Joaquim will retire in July, bringing an end to 26 years of service.

Chairman Terrence Keoghan said that the buying group has benefited immensely from Joaquim commitment to innovation and professionalism.

“Working co-operatively with the board, he [Joaquim] helped to jointly spearhead Showcase Jewellers strategic plans, taking Australia’s leading member-owned jewellery support group from strength to strength,” Keoghan said.

“During the pandemic he managed the organisation’s finances to ensure we remained in the strong financial position we are in today, and he oversaw a significant increase in member purchases since 2020; this allowed a high return on investment to its members in the past three years.”

Showcase fared well in the aftermath of the pandemic, reporting the loss of just five members (14 stores) between 2020 and 2022. The buying group has members in Australia, New Zealand, and Vanuatu.

Keoghan added: “I’m sure our members, suppliers and colleagues will join me in extending best wishes to Jorge, who is planning to spend more time with his family, particularly his wife and grandchildren.”

The buying group has also announced the appointment of Anthony Enriquez as managing director.

“We are pleased to have someone with Anthony Enriquez’ business acumen and positive approach to lead the company into the future,” Keoghan said.

Enriquez has been a director of Showcase Jewellers since 2019 and has experience in business, tax and finance. To maintain a level of continuity, Joaquim will be assisting in the transition for a further four months.
