He has worked with us on several key projects such as the relocation and the launch of our sub-office in India, and contributed significantly to their successful delivery. Doug's appointment will ensure both a seamless transition of leadership for the AnchorCert Group and also continued focus on the achievement of our strategic objectives."

Stella Layton, the outgoing CEO will retain close links with both the Jewellery trade, and specifically with the AnchorCert Group, as she resumes the role of Guardian. Stella intends to utilise her considerable project management and manufacturing experience and knowledge, by providing independent consultancy to the trade and beyond.
