Kim Pelletier Tapped To Lead IGC Brand Services
Chicago, IL—IGC Group NV, Antwerp, has appointed Kim E. Pelletier as president of its fine jewelry division, IGC Brand Services, located in Chicago, IL. IGC Group, a De Beers sightholder, has manufactured fine-make loose diamonds since 1912.

Her pedigree includes such notable brands such as De Beers, Polygon, Hearts On Fire, John Hardy and, most recently, for the designer jewelry brands Stephen Dweck and Michael Aram.

Her talents, experience, and long-established connections in the industry bring an expertise which we have not had prior to her joining the company. As one of De Beers’ oldest sightholders, we at IGC value longevity and commitment, which Kim has exhibited throughout her career. Kim’s diamond experience and jewelry background make her the perfect fit for this new challenge,” commented Jacques Claes, president of IGC Group NV.
