James Robert Dunn began his vocation in 1967 as a business agent for IBM. Amid a business call to a gems organization in Malden, MA, Jim got a magazine about the adornments business and progressed toward becoming interested. At the point when his calendar permitted, Jim took correspondence courses in gemology, and went to New York to find out about jewels and hued stones. "I purchased a little magnifying lens and I was playing researcher at home," he said.While at IBM, Jim met his future spouse, Ann Marie Pelliccia, who was filling in as an official secretary. Like Jim, she was driven by a pioneering soul. She was 10 years of age when her family moved to this nation from Italy. It didn't take long for Ann Marie to ace the English language and turn into the mediator for her dad's bureau making business. She got down to business consistently after school with her dad from age 11 until she graduated secondary school. Before long, she joined the group at IBM. "It was IBM that helped us manufacture our rationalities about client administration and business morals," said Ann Marie.
