RAPAPORT... The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) elected industry veteran Dione Kenyon as chair of its board of governors.

Kenyon (pictured), who recently retired as president and chief executive officer of the Jewelers Board of Trade, will take over the role from John Green, president and CEO of jewelry chain Lux Bond & Green, who remains on the board.

Barbara Dutrow, a geology professor at Louisiana State University, and Stephen Kahler, senior vice president of global sales for Swarovski Gemstones, were inducted as new members of the board.

Meanwhile, Glenn Nord, a former president of the GIA and a board member since 1983, was named governor emeritus.

The appointments were confirmed at the GIA’s November board meeting at its headquarters in Carlsbad, California.
