David Troostwyk has been appointed as co-president of the London Diamond Bourse and Charlotte Rose has been named vice president.
Current vice president Troostwyk’s appointment comes after Alan Cohen, the current president, announced that this year would mark his final term in office.
Cohen holds key positions within the World Federation of Diamond Bourses’ executive council and the World Diamond Council, among others.
The Bourse announced that Troostwyk would assume the joint presidency role with Cohen, starting January 18, 2024. This will continue until the AGM in 2024 at which time he will step down.
Following the vacancy created by Troostwyk’s promotion, the committee elected Rose as the first female vice president in the history of the London Diamond Bourse.
Troostwyk said: “I am delighted my peers have put their trust in me to lead the London Diamond Bourse as their joint President. As I work alongside President Alan Cohen to complete his term, i look forward to contributing and learning from the important work he’s done for the Bourse. I want to increase the value that we provide to our members. I am enthusiastic about the opportunity and committed to the continued success of the London Diamond Bourse.”
Rose added: “I am honoured and excited to have been appointed the first female Vice President of the London Diamond Bourse. It is a momentous occasion, not just for me but also the industry. I look forward to working alongside David and Alan to further drive collaborative efforts that elevate the bourse’s standing, and contribute to the industry as a whole.”
Stacey Aylott, executive level COO, concluded: “These leadership changes will bring fresh perspectives, strengthen the leadership team, and ultimately benefit the entire membership. I am looking forward to a seamless transition, under the joint leadership of Mr. Cohen and Mr. Troostwyk, as well as the dynamic contribution of Vice President Ms. Charlotte Rose.”
