Isidore Mörsel

(PRESS RELEASE) ANTWERP — The Antwerp World Diamond Centre has announced its Board of Directors has unanimously appointed Isidore Mörsel, CEO of Dali Diamond Company, as its new President, replacing David Gotlib who resigned from the Board in September. The Board also welcomes Mrs Thalia Pruwer, taking David Gotlib’s seat on the Board, representing the trade.

Isidore Mörsel is a prominent figure in the diamond industry, currently serving as the CEO of Dali Diamond, a well-established, third-generation diamond company known for its extensive vertically integrated operations. His commitment to the diamond sector extends beyond his role at Dali Diamond. From 2008 to 2012, Isidore served as a board member of the AWDC (Antwerp World Diamond Centre), the Diamond High Council, where he played a crucial role in shaping the industry’s policies and practices. He joined the AWDC Board again in 2020.

Mr Sahag Arslanian (Arslanian Group nv). and Mr. Amish Jain (N.N. Diamonds bv) will continue to serve as Vice-Presidents of the Board.

On behalf of the AWDC, CEO Ari Epstein expressed its gratitude towards former President David Gotlib for his commitment to protect the interests of Antwerp and the Antwerp World Diamond Centre during his tenure and wished incoming President Isidore Mörsel much success in his new role.




When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
