New appointment made to JAA board

The Jewellers Association of Australia (JAA) has appointed a new board member after former board director Brett Bolton vacated his position.

A media statement issued by the JAA stated that Cameron Marks, the managing director of Percy Marks Fine Gems, was assigned the role of board director.

According to the JAA industry release, Marks has held his position as managing director of Percy Marks Fine Gems for the past 15 years.

”Marks possesses extensive knowledge on the manufacture and design of fine jewellery as well as a passion for diamonds, coloured gemstones and opals,” the statement read.

The appointment follows the recent resignation of Bolton, who held his position on the board for approximately one year.

“Given the resignation of board director Brett Bolton, and whilst the JAA board is able to continue with five directors, the board set about finding someone that will contribute additional expertise to the forward strategy of the JAA.”

Reason for departure

The statement outlined that Bolton, director of Bolton Gems, decided to depart the voluntary position due to other personal and professional commitments.

“Whilst I tried very hard to juggle all responsibilities, I feel that removing one of them is my only option to be effective and successful in my endeavours,” Bolton stated. “I fully endorse the decisions and directions made by the JAA board, and believe that the board is fully committed to making decisions that are in the best interests of the JAA members.”

Commenting on the resignation, JAA board president Selwyn Brandt said the JAA board enjoyed working with Bolton and understood his decision to step down from the position.

“We wish [Bolton] all the best with his current and new ventures,” he stated, adding, “We are very much looking forward to benefitting from Cameron’s vast experience as we enter a new strategic planning phase here at the JAA.”

The JAA board consists of six industry members. In addition to Marks and Brandt, the current board includes: George Proszkowiec, buying group director and vice president; Frank Salera, retail director; Karen Lindley, supplier director; Jo Tory, co-opted director.
