Richline’s CEO Dave Meleski Elected New RJC Chair


The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) announced recently that Dave Meleski, president and CEO of Richline has been elected as the new chair of RJC.


Dave Meleski follows in the footsteps of David Bouffard who has served as chair since 2018.


Meleski said: “It is a critical time for the RJC to continue to grow and lead the global supply chain in setting standards for our industry. Richline has been involved at board and committee level since the beginning of the RJC, and as a global manufacturing company with retail customers around the world, we have helped promote the importance of the RJC as our singular voice for compliance standards since its inception. I am excited to follow David Bouffard as chair and thank him for his leadership these past six years. I look forward to working with our entire board of directors to push the RJC to even greater reach in my term as chair.”


“It has been an honour to serve as the chair of the RJC for six years – a truly challenging yet rewarding experience of a lifetime, especially representing Signet, one of the RJC’s founding members,” said David Bouffard. “Companies like Signet and Richline along with the valued team members and boards of directors over the past 20 years have taken the RJC from a 14-founding member organisation when launched in 2005 to one that is growing stronger each month with over 1,800 members to date.”


RJC executive director Melanie Grant will report directly to Meleski. Edward Asscher, honorary chairman of Asscher Diamonds, was also in the running for the chairmanship. He will continue as vice chair, according to the RJC. (Photo courtesy: RJC)
