“I am very excited to be joining SolarEdge during its continued expansion through acquisitions and organic growth,” said Bechor. “I was the General Manager of Flextronics Israel when SolarEdge began production in 2010, and I know well the products and many of the management and operations team. I am honored and poised to address the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.”
“Uri is a key addition to our growing executive management team,” stated Nadav Zafrir, Co-Chairman of SolarEdge. “He will significantly enhance our operations capabilities and execution. Mr. Bechor will no doubt contribute greatly to the operational aspects needed to grow both our core smart energy business and our recently acquired businesses, including lithium ion cells and batteries of Kokam.”
