The Natural Diamond Council (NDC)—the new name of the Diamond Producers Association—has appointed Gabrielle Grazi (pictured) as its vice president of retail.
She was previously director of stores for the North region at Signet Jewelers, where she also served as adviser for the Diversity Leadership Team and chair of the Women’s Business Resource Group, according to her LinkedIn profile. She also worked at Juicy Couture and L Brands.
The position is a new one. In her new role, Grazi will work with retailers around the group’s e-learning and trade marketing activities. She will represent the group at key trade conferences and events and will communicate with all the major trade organizations.
She will be based in New Jersey.
“Her leadership will bring immense value not only to the NDC but also to the collective industry as we work toward our common goals,” said Kristina Buckley Kayel, NDC’s managing director for North America, in a statement.
The Natural Diamond Council’s chief executive officer, David Kellie, discussed his plans for the group on the latest JCK podcast.
