Polygon, a business-to-business Internet marketplace for the jewelry industry, is opening new offices in Dubai, Mumbai, and Shenzhen, China, in what it calls the beginning of a global expansion.
Polygon’s international initiative is a joint venture with the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre. As part of the expansion, Jacques Voorhees, founder of Polygon, was named chairman of the company. New chief executive officers were named for PolyGroup, Ltd. and Polygon DMCC.
Replacing Voorhees is Louis Mousseau, formerly vice president of Corporate Marketing for Mediagrif, Polygon’s parent company. He will act as president of PolyGroup, Ltd., headquartered in Dillon, Colo. Marie-Josée Trépanier, formerly head of Mediagrif’s Dubai division, is the new CEO of Polygon DMCC, headquartered in Dubai in the DMCC free zone.
