Lieberherr to leave DPA


Jean-Marc Lieberherr will be stepping down from his current position as CEO of the Diamond Producers Association (DPA) on 31 December 2019, according to the association’s official announcement last Friday. Marketing expert David Kellie will be the successor.

Lieberherr joined DPA as chairman in December 2015 when the association was formed. “I am proud of what has been achieved since the DPA was created, and especially since it received increased funding from June 2017…I am confident that the DPA will play a critical role in the diamond sector in the years to come and am grateful to the DPA teams and Members for supporting me through what has been a lifechanging adventure,” he said.

DPA chairman Stephen Lussier said: “Jean-Marc was one of the DPA’s founding members and helped steer the development of the organisation from the beginning. On behalf of the entire board we thank Jean-Marc for his leadership, his commitment to the mission of the DPA and his energy in building the organisation during its formative years.”

Kellie is an experienced marketer for several consumer brands including Watches of Switzerland and Ralph Lauren where he held a number of positions such as corporate senior vice president for global marketing and advertising. He sees outstanding opportunities to grow consumer demand for diamonds as people are searching for authentic products with enduring meaning.
