De Beers Gives Céline Assimon Double CEO Role in Management Shakeup

Jul 20, 2021

The change will take effect Sept. 5, and the company said Liu will remain with De Beers Group until Sept. 21 to ensure a smooth transition. Cleaver said that Liu “has been instrumental in leading the development of De Beers Forevermark to its position as an internationally recognized and trusted name for responsibly sourced, beautiful diamond jewelry. Personally, I have enjoyed learning from and working with Nancy, and all of us at De Beers Group thank Nancy for her outstanding work, and we wish her all the best for the next chapter in her career.” The company said that during her 13-year career at De Beers Group, Liu played “a key role in the global development of the De Beers Forevermark business. Nancy led the growth of the business in China, building a new team and establishing De Beers Forevermark as a leading player in the rapidly growing Chinese consumer market for diamond jewelry.” She went on to become chief operating officer before being appointed De Beers Forevermark CEO in 2019, and has led the development and implementation of the business’s wholesale and retail strategy. According to De Beers, less than one percent of the world’s diamonds are eligible to become Forevermark. The company said that each Forevermark diamond is “responsibly sourced, originating at a carefully selected mine that benefits the people, community and country where it is located. Forevermark traces each diamond along its journey, ensuring strict business, environmental and social standards are met at every step.” The diamonds are sold in a select group of Authorized Forevermark Jewelers, and are available as loose diamonds or in finished jewelry. They also are inscribed with a microscopic brand logo and unique number. As reported, De Beers has been looking to streamline and consolidate management and operations. Last year , the group combined its Consumer & Brand and Corporate Affairs teams into a new single unit known as Brands & Consumer Markets. The new unit is “fully accountable for the development of the group’s brands, and the expansion of its consumer businesses,” De Beers  said. The company noted that the reorganization “represents an innovation in luxury: The consolidation of brand marketing and a company’s social purpose into one focused team. The unit is dedicated to engaging consumers in both the beauty of a De Beers diamond, and the beauty of its story.”
