Tim Schlick has been named CEO of Platinum Guild International (PGI) after nine years with the company. He follows long-serving CEO Huw Daniels, who will retire on April 4, 2024, leaving complete responsibility for PGI to Schlick.

Mr. Schlick has been a valued member of PGI since 2015, first as Chief Strategy Officer and most recently serving as Chief Operating Officer. He is a well-known business strategist and marketing guru who has advised over 30 Fortune 500 firms on how to drive growth through brands and products. He offers his knowledge from working with DDB China Group, McCann Erickson, and Andersen Consulting. Mr. Schlick will be located in Europe, but has past experience in the Asian jewellery sector.

Tim Schlick will focus on ensuring that PGI continues to add value to its sponsors and trade partners, as well as unlocking new prospects that drive platinum demand and global growth.

Benny Oeyen, Executive Head, Market Development at leading global miner Anglo American, who supports PGI through dedicated funding alongside Impala Platinum and Northam Platinum, said, “My congratulations to Tim on his new role, and I look forward to continuing to work closely together, as our relationship with Platinum Guild International is fundamental to building and supporting platinum’s growth in the jewellery sector.”

PGI has offices in four markets, directed by Pui P. Poon (China), Hisako Hankinson (Japan), Vaishali Banerjee (India), and Jenny Luker (USA), who will all report to Mr. Schlick. The organization drives global demand for platinum by collaborating with numerous major members of the manufacturing and retail industries, as well as through consumer-facing programs and activities.

“I feel excited and honoured to lead Platinum Guild International and work with our teams in the market to help them continue to bring market excellence to life in platinum jewellery,” said Schlick.
