Company Profile

necklace The Michael Hill Group is a market leading jewellery retailer, with a portfolio of brands, operating a network of over 300 stores across Australia, New Zealand and Canada, with multiple international digital platforms.

The first Michael Hill store opened in 1979 when Sir Michael Hill and his wife, Lady Christine Hill launched their unique retail jewellery formula in Whangarei, on the North Island of New Zealand. With engaging store designs, a product range devoted exclusively to accessible jewellery and the clever use of high impact advertising, Michael Hill rapidly gained popularity and rose to national prominence.

In 2016, Michael Hill moved its primary stock exchange listing to the Australian Securities Exchange and maintains a secondary listing on the New Zealand Stock Exchange (ASX/NZX: MHJ).

Over the last four years, the Company has been on a transformative journey reshaping many aspects of the business, underpinned by a clearly defined strategic agenda to elevate the brand and drive growth. The strategic framework is customer-led and continually evolving as we adapt to the ever-changing landscape of retail – with a focus on elevating our Brand, growing our Loyalty membership, enhancing and innovating our Digital & Omni-channel capabilities, refining our Retail Fundamentals, continual Product Evolution, exploring New Territories & Services, maintaining a Cost Conscious Culture and with a focus on Sustainability.

On 1 June 2023, the Group strategically acquired a complementary and scalable Australian value-led jewellery retailer, Bevilles.

Around the world, the Group employs over 2,800 employees across retail sales, manufacturing and corporate roles. As of 2 July 2023, the Group operates 172 stores in Australia (including 26 Bevilles stores), 46 in New Zealand and 86 stores in Canada.

From 1979 to the present day, and as we look to the future, Michael Hill is dedicated to creating quality jewellery for our customers to celebrate the key moments in their lives.

At Michael Hill, we are committed to becoming a more sustainable and ethically responsible business, protecting our eco-system and contributing to the communities we serve in meaningful ways, for generations to come.
