Content management and global distribution company RRSat has appointed Avi Cohen as CEO. He will replace David Rivel, founder and CEO of the company, who last year announced his intent to retire by the end of June 2012.
Cohen joins from Orbit Technologies where he served as president and CEO since 2008.
“We are extremely pleased to have Avi Cohen join us and lead the RRsat team,” said Shlomo Shamir, chairman of the board at RRsat. “Based on Avi’s long track record of notable and repeated successes both in Israel and internationally, we recognised his ability to add significant value to RRsat and its shareholders, and we believe he can take our Company to the next level in its growth path, further strengthening our position as a global leader in our industry. We are delighted to have been able to recruit someone of Avi’s caliber and we wish him much success in this new position.”
