Victoria McKay steps down from LDB

Chief operating officer of the London Diamond Bourse (LDB), Victoria McKay will step down after six years in the role.

In a statement released today (July 16), Alan Cohen, president of the LDB said McKay “has played a critical role in positioning the LDB as a progressive bourse worldwide and has transformed it from an inwardly focused private members club into a respected professional trade association with a global profile.”

He added, on behalf of the council of management, he would like to “thank her for many significant achievements; not least the past three years of all-consuming work while she headed our team to find a new suitable home for the LDB.”

By mutual consent, McKay will remain in the short term to complete the final stages of the development.

Commenting on McKay’s work at the LDB, he added: “Her strength and fortitude have brought us to the point of signing the lease for our new home together with delivering a plan to expand our operation in the future.

“In an effort to create a thriving diamond bourse and hub space, Victoria will be engaged by the bourse as a consultant to manage the launch of the new space on the LDB’s behalf.

“Again, we cannot thank Victoria enough for the dedication, passion and enthusiasm she has given to our organisation and, we wish her very best of luck in her exciting new chapter,” added Cohen.

Stacey Aylott, current executive assistant at the LDB, will be promoted to operations manager, taking over from McKay.
