LEE AND MAUREEN HOOSON, THE MANAGING DIRECTORS OF LIVERPOOL JEWELLERY STORE, MOCOCO, HAVE OFFICIALLY BEEN RECOGNISED AS LEADERS IN THE JEWELLERY INDUSTRY AT THE ANNUAL HOT 100 EVENT.
The lavish ceremony, organised by Professional Jeweller magazine, at London’s Freemason Hall took place this week and unveiled the UK’s most influential people working in the jewellery industry. The husband and wife team took two of the coveted top 100 spots for those who are forward thinking in their approach and bring innovation and creativity to the industry. Lee and Maureen were accompanied at the event with son Oliver, who also works within the family business concentrating on brand management and staff training.
The Hot 100 award follows on from Mococo’s recent win at the national UK Jewellery Awards winning the Best Store Environment category and nominated for Best Branded Retailer.
Speaking about the awards, Maureen Hooson, managing director of Mococo said;
“We started Mococo nine years ago with just £250. To be recognised for the third year running at the Hot 100 brings both myself and Lee such a sense of pride that in a short time, we are continued to be recognised within this competitive and ever-changing industry.”
Lee Hooson added:
“We love what we do, and we work hard to ensure our stores and online shop keep customers coming back for more. Our whole ethos is based on a principle of delivering impeccable customer service which has been a winning formula, resulting in the continued growth of Mococo. We would like to thank our customers for their support in helping us build our family business, and in turn be recognised by the industry for our achievements.”
Editor of Professional Jeweller and organiser of the Hot 100 awards, Sarah Louise Jordan said:
“The Hot 100 was a spectacular and fitting celebration of talent. What makes the Hot 100 so successful is that it levels out the playing field. Of the 100 people chosen there are no winners, meaning the skills, passion and talent are celebrated in a sense of unity, making the Hot 100 a celebration of the jewellery industry and not your typical awards ceremony.”
