Mr Ahmed Elbosaty (Chairman & Managing Director, Modern Nile Cotton Company) takes on the role of ICA President.
Ahmed will be supported by Mr Mohit Shah (Director, Gill & Co) as First Vice President and Mr Jean-Marc Derossis (Managing Director, Plexus Cotton Ltd) as Second Vice President, who re-joins the board this year.
On accepting the role of President, Ahmed said: "ICA's fate and direction is not about its president, it is about a common vision shared by its entire board, its past presidents, its management and, most importantly, its members.
Ahmed joined our Board of Directors in 2007 and was nominated as ICA Second Vice President in 2010.
Based in Egypt, he began his cotton career at Modern Nile Cotton Company, whilst studying for his BA in Economics and Political Science at Cairo's American University.
Since then he has assumed several roles at Modern Nile - including Export Manager, Commercial Director, General Manager and Managing Director - and is now Chairman & Managing Director.
Ahmed is an active member of the cotton value chain and serves on the board of a number of companies.
He is the current President of the Alexandria Cotton Exporters Association (ALCOTEXA) and a board member of several Egyptian foreign joint business councils, including the Indian-Egyptian, Chinese-Egyptian and Russian-Egyptian Council.
I have no doubt that, with all his experience on and long-time service to cotton worldwide, Mr ELBOSATY will be a president to be remembered for a long time to come by greatly contributing to the furtherance of cotton's unique image, with utmost respect to its fair trading practices and to the establishment of closer ties with all the players along its value chain.
