Waltham, Mass, April 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Dimension Ltd.

During his long business career until his current appointments, Major General (Ret.)

Major General (Ret.) Ben-Eliahu served in the Israeli Air Force (“IAF”) for 38 years. He was an F-4 Phantom fighter pilot and Squadron Commander, including during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, and the first F-15 Squadron Commander of the IAF. He later was a Commander of the Procurement Department of the IAF, Northern Base Commander, Deputy Commander of the IAF, and was subsequently appointed in 1996 as Commander in Chief of the Israeli Air Force, a position he held until retiring from active service in 2000.

Major General (Ret.) Ben-Eliahu is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program (AMP) at Harvard University. He holds a BA in Economics and Business Administration from Bar-Ilan University, and he completed his studies of Strategy and International Relations at Tel Aviv University.

Simon Fried, a co-founder of Nano Dimension, will step down from his position as a director after over 10 years with the Company. He will continue to serve as a special advisor.

Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, Chairman, and Yoav Stern, CEO and member of the Board, of Nano Dimension issued a joint statement: “We are honored to add Major General (Ret.) Eitan Ben-Eliahu to our Board. His extensive experience combining 25 years of business leadership, including as chairman and board member of public technology companies and venture capital firms will enhance the quality of our leadership. We also expect that Major General Ben-Eliahu’s experience in the defense industries, which is our largest customer segment along with aerospace, will contribute to Nano Dimension’s go-to-market plans.”

Major General (Ret.) Ben-Eliahu added: “I am motivated and excited to join the Nano Dimension team. After spending time with this leadership group, I was highly impressed with the innovation capabilities stemming from the people, products, and technology that are all part of the Company. With regard to the people specifically, I feel we share business goals, and, no less important, ethics. Furthermore, I am excited by the mutual vision and degree of enthusiasm in developing Nano Dimension by creating value for industry leading customers and generating return on investment for sophisticated shareholders.”

Yoav Stern further commented: “Simon stepping down is an emotional moment for Nano Dimension. I wish to acknowledge his extensive contribution to the Company since 2015. Firstly, as a co-founder and executive, and later a director. Since I have joined the Company in 2020, Simon has been a contributor to Nano itself but also to the very development of the 3D printing for electronics industry. His experience as one of the original pioneers will make his future involvement as our advisor even more appreciated.”
