Canadian Jewellers Association Initiates Management Transition

The Canadian Jewellers Association

TORONTO, December 11, 2018 – The Canadian Jewellers Association (CJA) announced today that it has initiated a transition of its management personnel.

Following the completion of his scheduled 18-month contract as Executive Director, Mr. Brian Land recently left that role and the Association. He will continue to be involved with the CJA as a freelance writer.

Ms. Carla Adams, currently a Manager in the Association office, will discharge the duties of executive director on an interim basis until a successor to Mr. Land is named, likely by mid-January.

“Brian Land was engaged primarily to assist in managing the amalgamation of the Canadian Jewellers Association with Jewellers Vigilance Canada,” said Mr. Marco Miserendino, Chairman of the CJA Board of Directors. “The knowledge and skill he brought to that file was of great assistance. The successful completion of that assignment now enables both Brian and the Association to determine and pursue their respective future directions,” Mr. Miserendino added.
