President, Israel Diamond Exchange
Yoram Dvash is one of most prominent business leaders of the diamond industry, both in the Israeli and internationally.
He was recently elected as the acting president of the World Federation of Diamond Burses, after serving 4 years as deputy president and on the board.
At the same time Yoram serves for the last 5 years as the president of the Israeli Diamond Burse, one of the major burses in the world, thus leading thousands of great people who make up one of the flagships of the Israeli economy.
In this position Yoram implemented many reforms, integrated modern technologies, new methods of communication, and works with the highest levels in the government and trade unions to enhance the Israeli industry and formalize strategies to cope with the huge challenges ahead. One of Yoram’s recent initiatives is building a new digital platform for international diamond trade- Get Diamonds- which is currently picking up speed and becoming popular in the community.
Yoram established his successful company- Dvash Diamonds- 30 years ago, starting modestly, producing small, square- and princess-cut diamonds, moving on to manufacturing larger stones, square-shaped and rounds, in sizes up to five carats. His company established strong trade partners in the major international hubs- the United States, India, Europe, Hong Kong and more. Dvash Diamonds today is a one of the leading companies of the Israeli diamond industry.
Yoram joined the Israel Diamond Manufacturers Association (ISDMA) at the beginning of the century and was elected as an ISDMA board member on 2011.
He also served on the board of the Israel Diamond Institute (IDE). Yoram was elected Honorary Secretary of the IDE, Chairperson of the IDE’s industry committee and Marketing Committee, and Observer on behalf of manufacturers at the IDE.
During his tenure as Chairperson of the IDE’s industry committee, Yoram was essential in pushing forward the Modern Manufacturing Center in Ramat Gan. He also initiated the "10+ -carat development section" in the technological service area in the bourse trading hall, to assure that such diamonds are manufactured in Israel rather than abroad.
Yoram Dvash is a father to three children.
