He succeeds Yoram Dvash, who resigned from the position two weeks ago after being in the role since late 2020.
Juwal is a second-generation diamantaire and partner in S. Juwal & Co., started by his father more than 40 years ago.
He has also been an active part of the Israel diamond industry, according to IDI.
In 2007, he was elected to the board of directors of Diamond Exchange Enterprises, IDI’s economic arm. Juwal continues to serve as a member of its board and chairs its Insurance and Taxation Committees.
He also has served as vice president of the Israel Diamond Exchange and chaired the Rough Diamond Committee.
“It is a great honor to serve as chairman of the Israel Diamond Institute, as well as a major responsibility. We are emerging from a very difficult time, and although the Israeli diamond industry has rebounded, there are still many issues that we must deal with,” Juwal said.
“IDI is responsible for several functions that are essential to the success of the Israeli diamond industry. I hope that my expertise as a diamantaire will enable me to contribute to the success of IDI, and I look forward to leading the institute in these crucial times.”
