 The London Diamond Bourse (LDB) has appointed three new members — including a millennial — to its board, the exchange said last week.

Kathy Chappell, the LDB’s special adviser for ethical issues, has joined the board, as has Charles Silverton, managing director of Silverton Diamonds. They are joined by David Troostwyk, director of polished-diamond company Salotro. Troostwyk also established the first online diamond exchange, the LDB said.

“These are the most fundamental changes to LDB’s governance in my six years at LDB,” said Victoria McKay, the exchange’s chief operating officer, noting that the youngest board member was a millennial. “Overall, the average age of our board has lowered dramatically, and representation around the boardroom table is proportionate to membership statistics.”

Additionally, Daniel Seller, the board’s former executive officer, has become vice president, alongside Alan Cohen, whom the bourse named as president earlier this month. Trevor Sigsworth has taken over as executive officer.
