Sally Morrison, Managing Director of Marketing of the Diamond Producers Association (DPA), will leave the organization in May to pursue another professional opportunity. Morrison, a veteran of Forevermark, World Gold Council (WGC) and the De Beers account at JWT joined the DPA late last October, so today's announcement comes a mere five months after her appointment. To ensure continuity of momentum in the DPA’s U.S. marketing activities, Michael Pace will join the organization at the end of March as Interim Managing Director of Marketing, until a permanent replacement to Sally is appointed. Pace also spent 13 years with the WGC. He will report to DPA Chief Executive Jean-Marc Lieberherr, and will work alongside David Lamb, former Managing Director of the World Gold Council, who is providing strategic marketing support to the organization.
