Nanox Appoints Gilad Yron as Chief Business Officer
NEVE ILAN, Israel and TAIPEI, Taiwan, Sept. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NANO-X IMAGING LTD (NASDAQ: NNOX) (“Nanox” or the “Company”), an innovative medical imaging technology Company, announced today that the Company has appointed Gilad Yron to the position of Chief Business Officer. In this newly created role, Mr. Yron will play a lead role in executing the Company’s existing MSaaS agreements (medical screening as a service) while in parallel refining the Company’s commercial strategy and overseeing customer-facing activities.
“As we continue to execute on our differentiated MSaaS model, it is critical that we assemble a word class team with the relevant experience to drive long-term success, and I believe Gilad is a perfect fit to lead this effort as our new CBO,” stated Ran Poliakine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nanox. “Gilad’s vast prior experience leading high-performance organizations in technology sectors will prove invaluable as we both fulfill our current MSaaS agreements that call for deployment of more than 5,100 Nanox.ARC systems, pending regulatory approvals, as well as drive broader adoption of this revolutionary new medical imaging modality around the world. Gilad rounds out a leadership team that I believe enables us to achieve our mission of democratizing medical imaging and introducing this potentially life-saving technology to the roughly 2/3 of the world’s population that currently has no access to imaging or the early detection that can ultimately save lives.”
“Throughout my career, I have sought to align myself with companies that occupy technology leadership positions within their respective industries, and I believe that Nanox’s fundamental reinvention of the X-ray technology leaves little doubt that they are the leading innovator in the field,” stated Mr. Yron. “I am pleased to have the opportunity to make the Nanox.ARC available to the broadest possible patient population, and I plan to work tirelessly toward this goal.”
Prior to joining Nanox, Mr. Yron served as Executive VP Global Business at Kornit Digital, where he managed the company’s Global Business organization to drive focus on company strategic direction, create a culture of excellence and innovation while building processes and infrastructure to drive and support the company scale-up ambitions. Kornit Digital is a global company and supplies digital textile printing machines to customers in more than 100 countries worldwide, and, founded in 2002, is a public company with a substantial market capitalization. Prior to Kornit Digital, Mr. Yron held senior managerial positions, both domestically and abroad, with organizations such as Stratasys Ltd, Nur Macroprinters, and Applied Materials. Mr. Yron holds a B.Sc. in Physics Engineering from Tel Aviv University.
