Mark B. Mann has been appointed by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) as its director of Global Jewelry Manufacturing Arts (JMA) effective February 28, 2011. He will carry on the role of planning, developing, implementing and evaluating the Institute’s global JMA education programs and collaborating with GIA’s domestic and international teaching faculty to improve and/or customize programs for local markets and serve new target audiences.

Mann’s over 35 years of experience in jewelry retail, production manufacturing and jewelry manufacturing education environments have seen him through various organizations and projects, including as director of product engineering for Hearts On Fire, director of professional certification and trade programs at Jewelers of America, amongst others.

He has been previously associated with the GIA as GIA supervisor and instructor of jewelry manufacturing programs, helping revise the Graduate Jeweler manufacturing program, and as general manager of education for GIA. “We warmly welcome Mark back ‘home’ to the Institute,” said Bev Hori, GIA vice president of Education and chief learning officer. “His hands-on approach to design, engineering and manufacturing, combined with his teaching, writing and speaking abilities, make him an invaluable asset to provide excellent service to our students and constituents.”

Mann earned his GIA Diamond Graduate diploma in the 1990s and is a recipient of the 2006 Technology Award from the Santa Fe Symposium®.
