Arik Gordon has become Landa’s new CEO following a ‘successful and significant’ 18 years at Orbotech.
He replaces Yishai Amir and will reconnect with his former colleague at Orbotech, Asher Levy, who was named active chairman at Landa Digital Printing earlier this year.
In the past two years Mr Gordon had served as executive vice president of strategy and growth and was responsible for defining and leading the company’s future technological growth strategy and its expansion into new markets.
Prior to this he held several executive management positions in the company’s operations in the Asia-Pacific region, and upon returning to Israel in 2013 was appointed president of Orbotech’s printed circuit board division.
‘During his years at Orbotech, I had the privilege of working closely with Arik,’ Mr Levy said. ‘I value him as a leader with a broad technological background, who has demonstrated deep business understanding and strategic thinking in every position he has held. Arik has the professional and interpersonal capabilities needed to lead our highly skilled and dedicated team, as we realize our unique and significant business opportunities, and establish Landa Digital Printing as a leader in the world printing market.’
Mr Gordon added, ‘I am delighted and excited to join Landa Digital Printing. Landa has a special and rare combination of ground-breaking technology, revolutionary products, first-rate professionals, and, not least, the potential to lead the trillion-dollar printing industry.
‘As CEO, I accept the mission of leading Landa’s talented team in Israel and worldwide to realise the significant opportunity ahead of us.’
