Stocks in this article: HWHWD

TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Harry Winston Diamond Corporation (TSX:HW, NYSE:HWD) (the "Company") announced today that after more than fifteen years of continuous service as an independent director of the Company, Mr. Roger Phillimore is retiring from the board of directors to focus on other professional challenges.

Mr. Phillimore joined the board shortly after the discovery of the Diavik Diamond Mine orebodies and provided invaluable advice as the Company progressed through the complexities of debt and equity financing for its 40% share of the capital cost of what, at the time, was the most expensive mining development ever to be undertaken in the Northwest Territories. His extensive, senior level experience in the natural resource industry has been an invaluable asset.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Gannicott commented, "Roger has been a close friend and sounding board to me throughout the evolution and growth of the Company while also being a wise and collegial member of the board of directors. We all wish him well for the future."
