Chaim Even-Zohar 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR OF

FROM MINE TO MISTRESS

Chaim Even-Zohar is principal of Tacy Ltd, a Tel Aviv-based consultancy specialising in all aspects of the international diamond business. The company has over 30 years of continuous involvement in the industry.

Mr Even-Zohar has been associated with diamonds since the early 1970s, when he arranged the purchase by the Israeli Government of rough diamonds from the US Strategic Stockpile, while attached to the economic mission of the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC. Thereafter he served as deputy director general of the Israeli Government-owned Pituach Diamond Corp, acquiring rough diamonds from Sierra Leone, Liberia, CAR, the UK, US and Belgium. After overseeing the company's privatisation, he left to serve as a manager at the diamond branch of the First International Bank of Israel in the late 1970s. Thereafter, he turned to journalism and consulting.

Mr Even-Zohar is editor or founder of various diamond-industry publications. These include the authoritative bi-weekly Diamond Intelligence Briefs (founded in 1984), monthly magazine Mazal U'Bracha Diamonds (1985), recently renamed IDEX Magazine, and other titles.

He is the author of 'Diamond Industry Strategies to Combat Money Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism' (2004) published jointly with ABN-AMRO Bank NV. This book was also published in the Hebrew language (2005) as is the recent 'Policies and Strategies of the Diamond Mining Producing Countries'.

Born in the Netherlands, Mr Even-Zohar emigrated to Israel in 1965. He earned a BA in Journalism (California State University), an MA in International Communications (American University, Washington DC) and pursued doctoral studies at Johns Hopkins University. Married to Tamar, the couple has three children and several grandchildren. They make their home in Caesarea, Israel.
