Susan Jacques, CEO of Borsheims in Omaha, Neb., has been named the honorary chair of the Diamond Development Initiative’s “Friends of DDI” fundraising campaign.

“We are honored that Susan is willing to lend her name to a project of such critical value to the DDI,” Dorothée Gizenga, executive director of DDI, said in a statement. “We’re optimistic that her leadership will raise the visibility and stature of the Friends of DDI program and will be a driving force of success for this campaign.”
