Diamonds CEO Wayne D. Diamond has made it clear that the company has an “unrivaled” reputation for transparency.
Speaking to CNBC, Diamond told host Kara Swisher that the diamond company has “a great reputation for honesty and transparency.”
Diamond, who is also CEO of the United States-based National Basketball Association’s Dallas Mavericks, said the company’s policy is “to have a board of directors that’s transparent” and that he would be “happy to share the data” of the companies operations to the public if asked.
“I know you guys, and I have a great reputation,” Diamond said.
“We have been transparent about all of our operations.
You’ve seen that, and we have a very good reputation.””
We’re not trying to be secretive, but we’re trying to take a risk-averse approach to our business.”
Diamond said the diamond industry is “very, very sensitive” to the recent scandals surrounding former Trump adviser Carter Page and the Russian ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, and that “we have a number of ways” to ensure the integrity of its operations.
The former Trump aide has since been charged with lying to the FBI about his communications with the Russian government, while the ambassador has also been charged.
A number of other Trump advisers have also been indicted over alleged Russian meddling in the US election, with the charges facing Page and Kislyak.
The Russian ambassador has said that the charges against Page and his associate were a “political witch hunt.”
