Press Release: Mehul Choksi, the chairman and managing director of Gitanjali Group, was named as one of the ''Top 50 International Power Brokers of Jewelry Industry'' by U.S. publication JCK Magazine.

The other four power brokers are Henry Cheng, the executive chairman of Chow Tai Fook; Bernard Arnault, chief executive of LVMH; François Curiel, the head of Christie’s jewelry department worldwide and Johann Rupert, the chairman of Richemont.

The magazine compiled a Power List of 50+ movers, shakers, and tastemakers in the jewelry industry worldwide, which is not based on numbers, but is comprised of  people who are “making waves and breaking barriers in the business.”

Choksi is the only Indian to figure on the list.

Elaborating on the concept, the magazine said, “The members of our Power List wield influence. They are listened to. They make things happen. And this business would be significantly different without them.”

The JCK Power List was put together by the magazine’s editors in consultation with numerous outside experts.
