She has been with the organization since 2012
The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (JVC) has promoted Sara Yood to senior counsel.
Yood, who joined the organization in 2012 as assistant general counsel, implemented JVC’s advertising monitoring program and has developed an expertise in the import/export laws pertaining to protected animal and plant materials used in jewelry.
In her new role, she will focus on doing legal research, drafting legal compliance tools, and participating in the Federal Trade Commission’s review of the jewelry industry.
“Sara has proved herself to be a champion of legal compliance in the jewelry industry,” said Cecilia Gardner, JVC president, CEO, and general counsel. “She also strongly pursues her interest in intellectual property issues as they impact our members and the industry as a whole. JVC looks forward to her bringing the same energy to her expanded role as senior counsel.”
