Gary Ralfe and Paddy Kell, after eight years of service as Managing Director and Finance Director respectively of De Beers, will be retiring at the end of February 2006.

Gary will assume a role as a non-executive Director on the DBsa Board.

They are grateful for their enormous contribution to the De Beers Group.

Gary will be succeeded by Gareth Penny and Paddy by Stuart Brown.

De Beers selects stones based on expertise in choosing exceptional fire, beyond the 4 C's, but ultimately, it is the diamond that chooses you."
