Press Release: The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) announced on Wednesday that Louise Prior, formerly a senior executive at De Beers, is joining the organization as its executive director effective from August 1.

The creation of the key role of executive director reflects the WFDB’s desire to enhance further its pre-eminent position in the modern diamond industry.
