Gilat Announces Changes in Executive Management

Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd., a leading provider of products and professional services for satellite-based broadband communications networks worldwide, announced that its Board of Directors appointed Erez Antebi as Chief Executive Officer of the company, effective January 1, 2012.

Antebi spoke about the new position, saying that as “the changes in the satellite market open exciting new prospects such as Ka Band technology and expansion of satellite communications to international defense applications,” he looked froward to increasing the company’s growth and expansion into defense.

The change in management comes as part of Israel’s new law forbidding dual positions in corporations. Amiram Levinberg, Gilat’s current CEO and Chairman of the Board, chose to step aside as CEO, but intends to continue to be actively involved in the company as Chairman of the Board.
