After nearly a decade of commitment and service to the association, Gino Di Geso will be transiting out of his role as Executive Director of the Natural Color Diamond Association later this month. Di Geso is joining L.J. West Diamonds as director of marketing, said a statement from NCDIA president Jordan Fine. "Gino started with the NCDIA in February 2006, and has served two executive directors, and several boards. The growth of the association is by-and-large a testament to his devotion, hard work and creativeness. He fostered an inclusive atmosphere full of events and opportunities for our members, while making everyone feel comfortable. I've personally seen him grow from a young assistant, to a devoted executive director running a multi-national not-for-profit.” Founded in 2003, The Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA)’s mission is to educate and promote global awareness and desire for natural color diamonds.The board is now searching for a new executive director.
