Oren Poleg has been appointed President and CEO of IAI North America, an IAI subsidiary.
Poleg’s appointment follows Colonel (Ret.) Amir Geva being made EVP North America at IAI’s headquarters, and additional management changes recently implemented by the CEO. In his new position, Poleg will work to expand IAI’s footprint in North America, including through advancement of mergers and acquisitions to help the company grow in the world’s largest defense market.
Oren Poleg replaces Lt. Gen. Ted F. Bowlds (USAF, Ret.), PhD., who served as acting CEO of IAI NA since July 2020.
“IAI believes its success in the American market is critical,” said IAI’s President & CEO, Boaz Levy. “IAI’s technological solutions and unique operational systems can provide the best solution to the US’ defense needs through local collaborations and direct solutions for different defense arms. I welcome Poleg onto IAI NA’s management team. His experience and familiarity with the American market, and with Israel’s defense industry, will surely prove instrumental in reinforcing and realizing IAI’s business potential in the USA.”
