Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

The An­twerp Di­a­mond Bourse (Beurs voor Dia­man­thandel) has made two new ap­point­ments to its board of di­rec­tors. Jac­ques Korn has been elected pres­i­dent, and Ra­jen­der Ga­hani has been elected ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. Mem­bers of the board are elected for a four-year pe­riod.

Korn has been in the An­twerp di­a­mond busi­ness for 40 years, and pre­vi­ously held the po­si­tion of ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the An­twerp Di­a­mond Bourse. He has also been on the An­twerp World Di­a­mond Cen­tre’s board of di­rec­tors since 2010.

Founded on June 7 1904 by An­twerp di­a­mond mer­chants keen to move their di­a­mond deal­ing from café Petit Duc, con­ve­niently lo­cated on the street next to An­twerp Cen­tral rail­way sta­tion, to a more se­cure and struc­tured place of busi­ness, the An­twerp Di­a­mond Bourse has con­trib­uted its own rich, 110-year chap­ter to the 550-year his­tory of di­a­monds in the city.
