RAPAPORT... Brigadier General Moti Besser, who most recently served as the managing director for Israel's State Comptroller’s Office, has returned to the diamond industry as managing director of the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE).  Besser was the managing director for the Israel Diamond Manufacturers Association (IsDMA) from 2002 to 2007 and prior to that,  a financial adviser to  IDF's chief-of-staff and head of budgets in the Ministry of Defense. Since leaving IsDMA, Besser has served as vice president of Amdocs U.K. and managing director of State of Israel Bonds U.K. moti besser yair sahar

IDE's president, Yair Sahar, invited Besser to take over position and   aid in his initiatives to  advance the exchange.  Besser received the blessing of State Comptroller, Micha Lindenstrauss, to accept the IDE role and was appointed to the advisory council of the State Comptroller’s Office.

Sahar said, ''Moti Besser brings significant added value to this positio due to his extensive experience in managing large and complex organizations in the IDF, the public and the private sectors in Israel and abroad. I have no doubt that Moti will make an important contribution to strengthening the Israeli Diamond Industry, which accounts for one quarter of Israel’s industrial exports.''

Besser said, ''The Israel Diamond Exchange, the largest and most sophisticated bourse in the world with 3,000 members, represents a huge economic force in the Israeli economy and a leading light among the world’s diamond bourses. I see my participation in leading the exchange as a huge challenge, especially in light of the tough competition posed by the world’s other diamond centers.''
