RAPAPORT... The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) is seeking a chief executive officer to “spearhead” growth of the U.K. teaching institute.

The successful applicant will have proven management skills and a high level of experience in gemology or a closely related field, the organization said in a statement February 4. The executive will oversee the day-to-day running of the organization, the development and provision of education, the management of the membership and media departments, and work closely with the elected board to develop and deliver a strategic plan, the statement continued.
