AGS Adds Sumit Dangi to Board of Directors
Dangi is global chief financial officer and treasurer at Jewelers Mutual Group.
Sumit Dangi, global chief financial officer and treasurer at Jewelers Mutual Group, was appointed to the board last month by President Lisa Bridge.
He replaces Director-at-Large Jamie Luce, who retired in September upon leaving the jewelry industry.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sumit Dangi to the AGS Board,” Bridge said.
“He brings tremendous insight both from growing up with his family in jewelry and his many years in banking, leadership, and consulting. Sumit will make a big impact on both the board and our membership with his thoughtful and curious approach. I am thankful to have him join our dynamic board.”
At Jewelers Mutual, Dangi heads large teams spanning controllership, treasury, financial planning and analysis, actuarial services, tax, internal audit, and vendor management.
Dangi said: “I am deeply honored by this appointment and to serve with this very talented group of leaders.
“The American Gem Society has an energized community of dedicated members and a promising future with exciting opportunities. I look forward to working with AGS leadership on driving the strategic direction, and I can’t wait to see what we accomplish.”
AGS will open nominations for the board early next year.
