Mark Gershburg stepped down as director of the U.S. Kimberley Process Authority (USKPA) to focus on his company, Gemological Science International, of which he is the founder and chief executive officer.

New York-based USKPA administers and controls the use of U.S. Kimberley Process certificates for the export of rough diamonds from the country.

Gershburg said growth of GSI, which offers gemstone identification and grading services, left him with little time to spend on other activities. Leaving the USKPA will “ensure that the fight against illicit diamond trade will continue and the younger generations will be engaged in this important initiative,” Gershburg said.
