Ehrlich. "Over this time, the Board and I have placed increased responsibilities in Steven's hands, and have been extremely pleased with the results," continued Ehrlich. "Together, the Board, Steven and I decided that next year would be the right time to hand over the day-to-day management of Arotech to a new generation, and I look forward to continuing my close work with Steven to ensure a smooth handover," concluded Ehrlich.

"As we move through 2013, Bob has successfully brought Arotech to the strongest position that it has ever been in," stated Arotech President Steven Esses. "I look forward to continuing and building on his hard work, and leading Arotech from strength to strength," concluded Esses.
