RAPAPORT... The World Diamond Council’s (WDC) board named Stephane Fischler as its vice-president (VP), meaning he will succeed Andrey Polyakov as president in 2018.

Fischler (pictured), a partner in Fischler Diamonds and president of the Antwerp World Diamond Centre, holds other positions in the industry such as such as VP of the International Diamond Council and the Diamond Development Initiative.

“Stephane Fischler’s extensive knowledge and experience, not only in the industry, but specifically with the Kimberley Process, is invaluable to the WDC,” said Polyakov. “We now have a great team in place to continue our focus on engaging with and enhancing the Kimberley Process, to the benefit of all concerned.”

Separately, Ronnie VanderLinden was reelected treasurer of the WDC for a second term, and Udi Sheintal was chosen to continue as corporate secretary.
