The International Grown Diamond Association (IGDA) has appointed its first leadership committee as it pushes ahead with its efforts to promote the category.

The team of volunteers hailing from lab-grown diamond companies around the world will help develop IGDA’s strategic priorities, the organization said Tuesday. These include setting up a training platform for retailers and their sales associates.

Among the members are Charlotte Daehn, director of communication at Courbet, a Paris-based lab-grown brand; Daniel Kahn, vice president of business development at Israeli producer Lusix; and Vishal Mehta, CEO at Lumex, which was launched in 2018 by the Mehta family, owners of Indian manufacturer Rosy Blue. The full list of committee members is on IGDA’s website.

“The IGDA leadership committee and its membership are a major step forward toward our vision of establishing a more diverse and international organization that is the voice of authority for the lab-grown diamond industry,” said Richard Garard, IGDA’s founder and president.
