Pomerantz Named WFDB Mark Ambassador

The World Federation of Diamond Bourses has named Howard M. Pomerantz roving ambassador for the WFDB Mark Associate Member Program.

Pomerantz is executive vice president of Gem Certification & Assurance Laboratory. The WFDB Executive Committee approved his appointment. He will present the associate membership program during an upcoming tour of the 26 WFDB member bourses.

“Our plan is to establish the WFDB Mark Associate Member Programme to benefit our industry. In maintaining consumer trust, Howard will play an important part as he is passionate about the WFDB Mark,” WFDB said in a statement.

Launched in June 2006, the WFDB Mark is a trademarked logo that approved members of WFDB-affiliated diamond exchanges can display to clients and suppliers, to confirm that they abide by the WFDB Code of Principles. Bourse members can display the WFDB Mark as long as they are in good standing.
