Jewellers association looks for new CEO

The Jewellers Association of Australia has announced that it will be looking for a new Chief Executive Officer after it revealed that Ian Hadassin would be leaving in June.

JAA president, Selwyn Brandt, confirmed that the board was currently working to find a replacement for Hadassin, who has held the position for seven years.

“The JAA operates in an increasingly competitive global market and the JAA is evolving to meet the ever changing needs of its members, the jewellery industry more broadly, and consumers. There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but we feel the time is right in moving the organisation in a new direction,” Brandt said.

He added the board was committed to moving the organisation forward in order to meet the changing needs of its members and the industry.

“As this work continues, we are focused on selecting a new leader to work with the board to chart the organisation’s course and execute it in a highly competitive industry.

“We’re fortunate to have Ian in his role until the new candidate assumes these duties and thank him for his notable contributions over the past seven years,” Brandt said.

During his time as CEO, Hadassin was involved in the development of setting up an in-house consumer complaints facility as well as introducing a new constitution in 2010 and the JAA Code of Practice.
