GIA Appoints Crimmin as Vice President of Lab Operations

29 april 2014

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) appointed Matt Crimmin as vice president of laboratory operations, Rapaport reported. He will report to Tom Moses, GIA's executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer, and  be responsible for overseeing regional laboratory operations with a focus on Africa and the Middle East.
Crimmin helped lead operational aspects of GIA’s international lab expansion from 2006 to 2009 and has valuable experience with global management and strategic initiatives to the role, GIA stated. He joined GIA from multi-national consumer goods company Procter & Gamble and served as GIA’s director of laboratory strategic initiatives from 2010 to 2011. Prior to joining GIA, he worked as a consultant for GIA and other consumer and luxury goods companies. He holds an MBA from Cornell University and a bachelor's degree from Brown University
Moses noted that Crimmin made a significant contribution to the development of lab processes as GIA expanded and has since gained experience in cross-functional management on a global scale.
"I’m confident that Matt will again make a significant contribution as we work to meet the expanding demand for services while maintaining our quality standards,” Moses added.
