TWO INDUSTRY EXPERTS JOIN PURE GROWN DIAMONDS MANAGEMENT TEAM
21 September 2017
Pure Grown Diamonds (PGD), the main United States marketing arm to the retail sector of IIa Technologies in Singapore (the world's largest gem quality lab grown diamond producer), has announced the addition of two new members to its management team.  Kelly Good, former Director of Brand Management at Scott Kay, will take on the role of Director of Marketing, and Debbie Hiss, a consultant to various companies, including the American Gem Society and Gemfields, takes on the role of Director of Training

Commenting on the appointments, PGD Director Suraj Mehta says, "Kelly and Debbie bring their vast knowledge and experience in the fine jewelry industry to the Pure Grown Diamonds brand. The appointment of Kelly and Debbie mark a strategic step into the future of the Pure Grown Diamonds brand."

Continues Mehta: "As we continue our strategy of providing excellent service to our retail partners, hiring industry experts to lead marketing and training initiatives will propel Pure Grown Diamonds leadership in the grown diamond industry.  We are delighted to welcome them to the team."

Good has nearly 20 years of experience in marketing and brand management with luxury and fine jewelry companies.  Recently, she was the Director of Brand Management at Scott Kay, where she drove the major re-launch of Scott Kay brand as well as increased the Scott Kay brand awareness by implementing a 360 degree marketing strategy that included the launch of a new advertising campaign (print, digital and social), new POS materials, public relations, events, training programs and promotions.  She previously was the Global Brand Manager at high-end eyewear company Safio USA, where she developed product, brand and marketing for several luxury designer brands.  Prior to that, Good was the Vice President of Marketing at Movado.
