Two more global industry leaders enter Diamond Empowerment Fund board of directors

16 october 2014
Two more global industry leaders enter Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.) board of directors: David Prager, the head of corporate affairs for the De Beers Group of Companies, and Kent Wong Siu Kee, the managing director of Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited.
The Diamond Empowerment Fund is a global, non-profit organization focused on supporting education initiatives in diamond communities.
Prager's work across geographies and with a diverse set of stakeholders that includes civil society, media and governments will be especially helpful as D.E.F expands its "diamonds do good" mission to global communities.
Wong broadens D.E.F’s worldwide representation to the important, and growing, diamond and jewelry sector in Hong Kong and Mainland China. An industry veteran, with substantial experience in both operations and management in the jewelry industry, Wong was named one of the “25 Influential Chinese in Global Fashion” by world-renowned business magazine Forbes in 2012.
Phyllis Bergman, the president of the D.E.F. board of directors and CEO of Mercury Ring, is thrilled by the global diversity of D.E.F’s board. “With the addition of David and Kent on our board, D.E.F is truly representative of the global diamond and jewelry industry,” she said.
