U.S. Kimberley Process Authority elects Jerry Ehrenwald to its Board of Directors

21 december 2016

Jerry Ehrenwald, President and CEO of International Gemological Institute, was elected to sit on the Board of the U.S. Kimberley Process Authority after Mark Gershburg vacated this position having spent more than ten years as one of the three directors at USPKPA.
USKPA is a trade association helping the U.S. Government to eradicate conflict diamonds from legitimate supply channels. It oversees the use of KP certificates in rough exports from the United States.
“We look forward to working with Mr. Ehrenwald and the IGI staff to fulfill this meaningful mission for the U.S. rough diamond industry,” said Dr. Martin Hochbaum, executive director and member of the USKPA Board.
“I am pleased to be appointed to the USKPA board and look forward to the opportunity to help enhance the KP Process as well as support the vital message that KP certification means to the diamond industry – from the mine to the ultimate consumer,” Jerry Ehrenwald said in his statement in connection with this appointment.
