, Israel Aerospace Industries’ (IAI) President & CEO Boaz Levy has announced the appointment of Oren Poleg as President and CEO of IAI North America, an IAI subsidiary (IAI NA).

The nomination follows the appointment of Colonel (Ret.) Amir Geva to 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 is replacing Lt. Gen. Ted F. Bowlds (USAF, Ret.), PhD., who has served as acting CEO of IAI NA since July 2020.

IAI’s President & CEO, Boaz Levy, commented, “IAI believes its success in the American market is critical. It thus takes the necessary actions to expand our business operations in the USA. 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.”
