RAPAPORT... The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) announced a new executive committee, selecting Mehul Shah as treasurer-general.

Shah, vice-president of Mumbai’s Bharat Diamond Bourse, takes over from longstanding officeholder Dieter Hahn, while Rony Unterman continues as secretary-general. The new board comprises Rami Baron, Julien Drybooms, Anoop Mehta, Lin Qiang, Alex Popov, Reuven Kaufman, Nikhil Jhaveri and Peter Meeus.

In addition, Michel Schonfeld takes over as deputy secretary-general and Julien Drybooms was appointed deputy-treasurer general. Drybooms was also named honorary life vice-president. Louise Prior takes the role of executive director.

The changes were voted through at the 37th World Diamond Congress in Dubai last month, at which Ernie Blom was re-elected for a third consecutive term as the WFDB’s president and Yoram Dvash was chosen as vice-president.
