Walsh chairman retires after 64 years

He now intends to spend more time on his property business, supported by daughters Lisa and Sophie.

Desmond has dedicated much of his life to the success of the company, which was founded in 1947 in the front room of his father’s house in Beckenham. From humble beginnings, H S Walsh has grown substantially, now boasting a head office in Biggin Hill and two branches in Hatton Garden and the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter.

“Desmond will be keeping in touch with head office and both branches from time-to-time,” said a statement from the company, “and we wish him well for a long, healthy and happy retirement.”
