The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) has joined the upcoming NAJ Awards celebrations as category sponsor.
The CMJ is sponsoring the Supplier of the Year category at this year’s event, which will be held on 12 June as part of the second NAJ Summit.
Emmet Cummins, Managing Director of the CMJ, said: “As a fellow supporting body to the jewellery and watch industry, the Company of Master Jewellers is delighted to support the NAJ Awards to recognise the exceptional talent within the sector. As membership organisations, both the NAJ and CMJ can see from a broad perspective the exemplary hard work that goes into running these nominated businesses, from retailers and suppliers to designers and craftsmen. Collaborating with the NAJ to recognise this was paramount to us.
“We have chosen to support the Supplier of the Year Award. As well as empowering independent retailers, supporting and engaging with our supplier members is at the heart of the CMJ. This felt like the perfect opportunity to focus on the talent and achievements made by suppliers in the industry.
“We wish all the businesses that have been shortlisted the best of luck.”
Principal Officer of the NAJ, Ben Massey, said: “It is exciting to see more organisations support the NAJ Awards as we look to celebrate the extraordinary talent within the jewellery industry.”
