Metal Marketplace International (MMI), a karat gold and silver jewelry contract manufacturer, is pleased to welcome newest team member, Gina Bogda. Gina joined MMI on January 18, 2022 as the Director of Business Development. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to MMI’s team.
Gina has an extensive background in both sales and marketing over the last 20 years. Her former positions include over a decade in fashion jewelry direct sales, where she led a multi-million dollar team as a founding leader in the field before moving to the corporate office in sales and training. Her strengths in project management, team mentorship, communication, and marketing led her to also owning a freelance business for 5 years, where her focus was working with female entrepreneurs to systemize, market, and operate their small businesses.
Gina is passionate about creating and implementing strategic communication tools, effective systems and purposeful resources to maximize engagement and achieve results. Bogda is a 1994 graduate of Cornell University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and Marketing.
MMI President & Founder, Tony Acquaviva, is regularly sharing his excitement about the company’s newest hire. Gina was formerly employed by MMI over 20+ years ago, but her connection runs much deeper. Gina is Tony’s eldest daughter!
“My Dad has spent the last 44+ years building MMI into a solid, trustworthy, and sustainable brand,” said Gina. “I am excited to partner with him and MMI’s team, blending and honoring the company’s successful traditions, while integrating new systems to continue MMI’s growth, success and legacy.”
Gina is most excited to lead the development of MMI’s new website. Already in the works, MMI’s new website will provide easier navigation, faster load times, a fully searchable database, clearer call to actions, smoother checkout process, customer price quotes, real time inventory and an overall improved online shopping experience.
“MMI’s objective remains steadfast – delivering quality products, competitive pricing and personalized attention,” says Gina. “Building a new e-commerce website is an incredible opportunity to better serve our customers digitally.” Metal Marketplace expects to launch their new website by late summer.
