RAPAPORT... Rockwell Diamonds appointed Mark Bristow as a non-executive chairman to fill the vacancy left by David Copeland, who stepped down from that role. Copeland will, however, remain on the board as a non-executive director. Johan van't Hof also joined Rockwell Diamonds' board as an independent, non-executive director.

Bristow was acting chief executive for six months at Rockwell, through May 2011, during which time he initiated a strategic corporate review that led to initiatives to improve the production profile and enhance efficiencies.

"We welcome Johan to the board and look forward to a long and productive engagement with him,'' said Bristow. ''The additional technical and financial skills which he brings will benefit the company as it progresses with its growth strategy. We also express our sincere gratitude to David for his loyal commitment and wise counsel during his five year tenure as chairman. With the changes that have been implemented, Rockwell's board has a good balance with its South African based knowledge and experience being complemented by global focus of our international directors."
