Jewellery Team Manager
Mark began his jewellery career when he and a friend set up and managed a precious metal scrap counter in Birmingham’s Jewellery quarter. Some years later Mark joined the Mastermelt reclamation team, a team he now manages. Mark continues to look after his own customers because he loves being hands on and helping them benefit financially from his knowledgeable reclamation advice. Mark looks after the South-West, Midlands, and North-West of England, as well as the jewellers in Wales and Scotland. Check out his one-minute reclamation videos and please invite him to give his 30-minute workshop reclamation talk, which is always in high demand from jewellery workshops and students alike.
Fun Fact: Mark was in the St John’s ambulance as a teenager and made it to the national finals in first aid competitions where they came 7th out of 12.
