Opsydia appoints new sales and marketing director
Diamond and gemstone security specialist, Opsydia, has appointed Jimmy Gove to the position of sales and marketing director, effective immediately.
Opsydia is recognised for its technology that places unique identifiers on and beneath the surface of gemstones to secure their identity.
Gove brings to Opsydia more than a decade of experience and knowledge in the diamond,
gemstone and jewellery industries.
He most recently served as digital projects manager at Bonas Group in London, the “world’s largest independent” diamond and gemstone tender or auction house.
Prior to this, he spent almost eight years in Antwerp where he developed and managed the
group’s digital transformation strategy, as well as its tender or auction sales and analytics
platform used by international mining companies and private sellers.
At Bonas he also worked closely with “large” diamond and jewellery companies throughout the value chain in Europe, USA, UAE and India as a senior consultant and De Beers Broker.
The company said that with Gove’s arrival, Opsydia has entered a new stage of its development and aims to continue its global expansion in the diamond and coloured gemstone industries.
He will work with Opsydia’s existing and prospective clients to provide practical and technological solutions to enhance supply chain transparency and support traceability initiatives.
Opsydia CEO, Andrew Rimmer, said: “Jimmy is an important addition to the Opsydia team. His professional experience in the diamond and coloured gemstone industries, coupled with his understanding and links to the corporate jewellery businesses, is going to be invaluable as we move into this next phase of our growth and development. A surge in new client acquisitions in 2022 highlighted the need for a sales and marketing director who can drive this commercial side of the business forward.”
