The De Beers Group of Companies has announced new appointments to the position of senior vice president of sightholder sales and senior vice president of product planning at its Global Sightholder Sales business.
Nigel Simson will move from his current role as senior vice president of sightholder sales to head up the new product planning function, which will establish closer intergration between sales, product planning and product delivery. In turn, this will enable the delivery of more tailored product and service offerings for rough diamonds customers.
Elsewhere, Bernard Bradley will take over from Simson as senior vice president of sightholder sales, bringing with his an outstanding track record of strengthening customer experiences and relationships from a number of senior international sales roles.
Simson and Bradley will both be based in Gaborone Botswana, with Bradley joining the organisation in early September.
