DTC names Lamb worldwide marketing director

The Diamond Trading Company has named David Lamb as its worldwide marketing director. Lamb, currently executive vice president, director of multinational clients for J. Walter Thompson, replaces Stephen Lussier, who was named to the post of director of external and corporate affairs for the De Beers Group.

said, “I really cannot think of a better person for this role than David.  He has a wonderful range of experience and has worked closely with De Beers in the past.  He was instrumental in developing many of the DTC’s marketing campaigns including the very successful ‘Past, Present and Future – 3 Stone Ring’ concept. 

“The DTC has already benefited enormously from his creative expertise and we look forward to seeing him take our already world-class marketing operations from strength to strength,” said Varda Shine, DTC managing director designate.

The DTC also announced that Dominic Brand, currently DTC’s marketing director, developed markets, has been appointed as deputy director, Worldwide Marketing and will support Lamb on all DTC marketing activities. He will be responsible for DTC marketing until Lamb takes up his post in the first quarter of 2006.
