Riley resigned last week despite having considerable support among members, trustees, senior executives and several current and former members of the Gem-A board, Professional Jeweller reported. However, it is not clear whether the resignation has yet been formally accepted by the board, which is currently without a chairperson.
Riley has been on leave since March of this year and was reportedly suffering with ill health. Gem-A is investigating allegations of improper conduct by the former CEO, according to the report.
