Conexx is pleased to announce our newest team member, Michael Piha, as our representative in Israel. Starting August 1, Michael will be replacing Bracha Shlomo who will be embarking on an exciting journey in Thailand for her husband’s new posting as the Ambassador to Thailand with the Israeli Foreign Ministry.
Michael comes to Conexx from MIS Dental Implants Technology Ltd., where he was the Asia Pacific Regional Manager. Prior to MIS Dental, Michael spent two years building the Global Business Development division for Sasa Software, a cyber-security – start up. He also spent sixteen years as one of the leading managers at Plasan Ltd, a leading global armoring company. During his years at Plasan, Michael served in major roles such as CFO, Global Supply Chain Manager, and Director for Business Development, leading Plasan in its rapid and intensive growth.
Michael Piha was born in Haifa and, after his military service, joined Kibbutz Sasa, one of the few kibbutzim founded by Americans. He holds a BA in Economics and Management from the Rupin institute, and is a member of the board of directors of a transportation company.
With Conexx, Michael will continue the incredible work Bracha and the rest of the Conexx team have put into place by strengthening existing and creating new US-Israel business relationships and connections. Michael will work to expand our presence in regional conferences, forums, and events. Michael will also support Conexx’s many delegations and trips to Israel during the year.
Michael is looking forward to sharing his extensive and diverse experience in business development, project management, and professional networks. His experience will help to strengthen the Conexx brand amongst the Israeli innovation ecosystem, as well the connection between Israeli and American companies.
Conexx would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Bracha for her dedication and hard work. Over the past three years, Bracha has worked diligently to grow the Conexx name and brand amongst the most prestigious companies, leadership and industries in Israel. Her efforts have created memorable trips and delegations and have forged new business relationships and connections for our organization. We wish Bracha and Ambassador Meir Shlomo the best of success as they take on the task of representing Israel in Thailand. Todah Rabah!
