The AnchorCert Group, which includes Assay Office Birmingham, has appointed new sales director Steve Hamon.

Hamon has more than 17 years’ experience as a senior sales and business development professional, including more than four years’ leading the UK and Eire Product Division for global testing laboratory Intertek and more than five years’ managing the BSI (British Standards Institution) Engineering, Testing and Kitemark divisions.

He was officially appointed in December 2017 and has been working closely with the senior management and executive team to understand the complexities of the jewellery industry, as well as familiarise himself with AnchorCert Group’s divisions and services.

Chief executive and Assay Master Doug Henry comments: “We are really pleased to welcome Steve into our team and we know that the trade will welcome him as warmly too. It’s a great industry to work in as I have discovered myself, so I am sure Steve will find it as rewarding as I do.”

“Steve’s experience within the testing and certification sectors will be a valuable asset for AnchorCert Group. We have some exciting new products in the pipeline and Steve will be integral in delivery of these, as well as continuing the growth of our core businesses.”

Hamon adds: “I’m very pleased to be joining the AnchorCert Group at such an exciting juncture for the business.  I am keen to add value to the business through the benefit of my expertise and experience, especially within the laboratory testing sector. I am also very much looking forward to getting out and meeting the jewellery trade, both in Birmingham and across the UK.”
