Polygon Expands into Three International Markets

Polygon, the jewelry industry Internet marketplace, has opened new offices in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Mumbai, India; and Shenzhen, China, marking the beginning of the company's planned global expansion.

The company also signified its new era by naming founder Jacques Voorhees chairman of Polygon. Louis Mousseau, formerly of Polygon parent company Mediagrif in Quebec, Canada, was named president of PolyGroup Ltd., Dillon, Colo. Marie-Josée Treépanier, also formerly with Mediagrif in its Dubai division, will serve as CEO of Polygon DMCC — the Dubai office, which is a joint venture between Polygon and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, a Dubai government initiative.

"Polygon has a dominant position in the U.S. market," says Voorhees in a release. "By expanding globally, we will be leveraging that position, and bringing our expertise in online-marketplaces to the emerging markets in the Middle East, India, Asia, Africa and Russia as well as in other key regions."
