(IDEX Online News) – The Board of Directors of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee has convened a search committee to identify and hire a President, CEO & General Counsel to replace Cecilia Gardner, who is stepping down from the position in 2017.
“We are grateful for Cecilia’s 18 years of service to the JVC and her unwavering dedication to ethics and legal compliance in the jewelry industry," said Steven Kaiser, Chairman of the Board of Directors of JVC. "Her decision to step down from this role creates an opportunity for a new leader for JVC, and we look forward to identifying the best candidate for the position.”
