He was most recently national sales director at European Luxury Distributors, where he built businesses for fine jewelry manufacturers, developing and maintaining key sales accounts. 

Boucher believes that lab-grow diamonds have huge potential in the fine jewelry marketplace.

He also noted his excitement about Smiling Rocks’ charitable mission, in which 1 percent of loose diamond revenue and 3 percent of finished jewelry revenue benefits philanthropic partners in environmental protection, medical support, education support, and animal protection.

“I am very proud and honored to work with Smiling Rocks and spread the mission of giving back to our community together with [co-founders] Zulu [Ghevriya] and Manish [Jiwani],” said Boucher in a press release.

“Their humbleness and sophistication in presenting the brand with a philanthropic agenda is admirable and an inspiration to us all. I am ready to move together in this journey with the Smiling Rocks family.”

“Smiling Rocks is very excited to have Baird be a part of our growing family,” said Ghevriya. “His energy, enthusiasm and excellent sales experience is beyond imagination. Together we hope to build the brand and expand it nationwide, spreading the chain of smiles with our new family member.”
