The London Diamond Bourse (LDB) has promoted Victoria McKay to become its first chief operating officer.
McKay joined the LDB in October as operations manager.
The position is new to the LDB. McKay will work directly with the board and take responsibility for all aspects of the day-to-day management of the trading floor, including human resources, marketing, finance, property, IT, and security.
“The appointment of a chief operating officer is essential to the day-to-day management of the LDB to further the strategic and commercial aims of the organization,” said president Harry Levy in a statement.
Added McKay: “Anyone who knows me understands that I have a real love for the LDB. The members of the London Diamond Bourse have made the last year an absolute pleasure.”
