New York—An industry veteran with retail, wholesale, manufacturing and marketing experience has joined the Goldiam USA team.

Scott Sedlacek is the new vice president of sales and business development for the jewelry manufacturer.

He will represent both the natural diamond collection distributed by Goldiam USA since 2008, as well as the company’s lab-grown diamond offerings.

Previously, the company sold its lab-grown diamond production exclusively into the wholesale market, offering loose stones to other manufacturers only.
