Cohen has a deep and long-standing familiarity with the communications market and was selected for the position due to his extensive experience in the field of infrastructure. Vaknin was forced to resign after his associate Avi Gabay, the former CEO of Cellcom (which is a leading shareholder in the fiber venture), resigned from the board of directors. The company’s CEO Amir Levy, who announced his resignation, will be replaced by Yossi Hever. Hever has served for the past five years as the CFO of HOT (which is a major shareholder in the fiber venture) and has previously worked for the company for 14 years in various positions.
