In parallel, the Board has expanded the Company's management capabilities with the recruitment of a Deputy CEO, Mr. Moti Hania, and a CTO, Dr. Erez Ben Eshay.

Commenting on the news, Mr. Sergey Anisimov, the Chairman of RiT's Board of Directors, said, "We are grateful to Mr. Eran Ayzik, who has executed a successful turnaround while initiating the creation of important new products. Working in parallel, we have formulated a bold new vision and direction for the Company, and have recruited additional management team members with the right skills to carry out an ambitious new program. Among other tasks, we have mandated the management team to expand our R&D and other teams as needed to complete a number of exciting new projects.
