GIA has expanded its business development team for its North American and global brands.
Two industry veterans, Matthew Morabito and Daniel VanDrew, will join the team, where they will both hold the title of director of business development.
Morabito (top) joined GIA in April. Prior to that, he spent five years at Tiffany & Co., where he became senior director of the Love and Engagement floor at Tiffany’s flagship store in New York City.
Previously, he was a territory manager for Hearts On Fire and a senior manager of Michaels Jewelers in Connecticut.
VanDrew has more than 27 years’ experience in the watch and jewelry industry. For the past 18 years, he served as key account manager and director of national accounts at LVMH and TAG Heuer.
The new hires will report to Richard Pesqueira, GIA’s vice president of business development for North America and brands. Pesqueira joined GIA last year.
