Showcase Jewellers CEO loses position on industry board

The Jewellers Association of Australia will be electing a new finance director following news that Michael Mishevski has resigned as Showcase Jewellers CEO, thus forfeiting his position on the association’s board. 

Jewellers Association of Australia (JAA) president Selwyn Brandt confirmed to Jeweller that Mishevski’s resignation from Showcase Jewellers buying group – and effectively the industry – meant he was no longer able to serve as a JAA board member.

Brandt said the board would convene for a meeting in early August, during which a replacement would be determined. Nationwide Jewellers managing director Colin Pocklington has assumed the role of acting finance director in the interim.

Until now, Mishevski had also been the Showcase Jewellers representative on the JAA board; the buying group has been advised it will need to nominate a substitute for the board’s approval.

Mishevski’s decision to leave his position as CEO, effective 31 July 2014, was announced earlier this week.

In an official letter addressed to the buying group’s key suppliers and business partners, George Proszkowiec, chairman of JIMACO, the operating company for Showcase Jewellers, advised that after 29 years working for the buying group –18 of which were as CEO – “Michael has decided that it is time for a change”.

The letter went on to state: “The board recognises Michael’s achievements, including his leadership of the Showcase support office team in assisting all members to grow their businesses during his term as the CEO of JIMACO Ltd.

“The Board appreciates Michael’s efforts and wishes him the best in his future endeavours.”
