RAPAPORT...The World Diamond Council (WDC) has hired industry veteran Elodie Daguzan as executive director to succeed Marie-Chantal Kaninda, it said Tuesday.

Daguzan most recently spent eight years at Paris-based diamond-trading company Rubel & Ménasché as head of communications and industry relations, responsible for educating the company’s clients about industry supply-chain developments.

Since 2017, Daguzan has represented Rubel & Ménasché at the WDC, serving as an active member of the Kimberley Process Task Force, and has taken part in the council’s communications, membership and strategic-planning committees.

“We are delighted and most fortunate to have Elodie join us as executive director,” said WDC president Stephane Fischler. “She comes to the position with an innate understanding of the diamond industry and of the critical role played by the World Diamond Council. She also has the advantage of having represented the WDC in Kimberley Process intersessionals and plenaries around the world.”

Daguzan will begin her role with the WDC on February 1.
