At the 35th World Diamond Congress, International Diamond Manufacturers Association (IDMA) elected its new leadership, with Maxim Shkadov of Russia elected as its new president. He will be taking on the role from outgoing president Moti Ganz.

Also, incumbent Secretary General Ronnie VanderLinden and incumbent Treasurer Stephane Fischler were both re-elected for another term in office. Three incumbent Vice Presidents, Vasant Mehta of India; Ronny Friedman, USA; and Eduard Denckens of Belgium were also re-elected. In addition, David de Toledo of Israel and Edward Asscher of the Netherlands were elected to serve as Vice Presidents.

Secretary General VanderLinden mentioned the outcome of the elections demonstrated the need for greater and wider involvement of IDMA members in leading the diamond manufacturing industry through an ever more complex maze of challenges it is engaging.

Maxim Shkadov also thanked outgoing president Moti Ganz for his two terms in office and added that, "While you are stepping down as IDMA president, we know you will continue to step up to the plate to serve the industry, both in your own country as well as in the international realm," he added.
