Rex Ekaireb, lives and works in London, UK and has, over the years and decades, built a reputable business and professional presence in the UK. Rex has worked in various industries including jewellery, wholesale, manufacturing and most-recently, property. His constant passion for what he has always done shines through in everything he does, including one of his strongest interests and pursuits; the charity sector, both in the UK and around the world.
Rex Ekaireb started his business journey, qualifying and then practising as a chartered accountant in London in the 1970s, at a time where business opportunities were aplenty for those seeking them. Grounding himself as a chartered accountant in one of the world’s financial hubs, Rex gained valuable knowledge and expertise which allowed him to work successfully as an accountant for over a decade.
Having established himself in chartered accountancy, Rex saw an opportunity in the jewellery market and so naturally, his attention was piqued by the roaring trade in London’s famous Hatton Garden jewellery district. In 1982, Rex, along with his brothers-in-law, determined to carve a business out of the jewellery industry, set up a jewellery business, selling wholesale into the UK market.
