Reed Jewelry Group’s JCK and Luxury events team proudly announce Jim Fox as portfolio sales director focusing on the industry and customer relations. Fox will be responsible for strategy, leadership and development as well as key account customer relationships. The addition of this role will further JCK’s mission of becoming closer to customers, extending the opportunity for the team to listen to their customers and act on their feedback.
Fox has more than 20 years of sales and business development experience in the luxury goods sector. Having served as sales director in the consumer products division of Swarovski for more than nine years, he is also closely aligned with retail challenges and opportunities. He directed Swarovski’s licensed boutique business, creating 50 new stores and generating more than $50 million in new business at casinos, airports and traditional retail outlets. Previously, his sales experience with the fine writing instrument division of The Gillette Company gave him an insightful tour of luxury retail in partnership with such brands as Tiffany & Co., Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and guild independent jewelers. Over the years, Fox has developed a service-oriented, consulting approach to sales, believing that one must truly understand a customer’s objectives, products and challenges in order to add value and make strategic suggestions that will ultimately drive business for both parties.
“JCK is excited to have such a seasoned luxury sales veteran join the management team,” says Sarin Bachmann, event VP of JCK and Luxury. “Jim’s values and history of approaching sales as a consulting strategy aligns with our passionate commitment to customer satisfaction. We are confident that 2019 and beyond will bring a measurable difference for our customers.”
