A director of a jewellery retailer with a store in Huddersfield has been elected chairman of the National Association of Goldsmiths (NAG) at its annual meeting in London.
Andrew Hinds, of F Hinds, is the second member of the Hinds family to hold a prominent post with the association as his uncle, Eric Hinds, was its president in 2001.
The accolade was also the first of three for the company, which has a store at the Kingsgate Centre and dates back to 1856. The second was awarded by Family Business United (FBU) at the Family Business Awards 2014, where FBU managing director Paul Andrews praised the company as an “exceptional family firm”.
The third award was for the Catalogue Of The Year at the European Catalogue and Mail Order Days ceremony for the F Hinds’ Christmas 2013 brochure.
