Russian property developer MirLand has appointed Alexander Regenbogen to the Board as an independent non executive director with immediate effect.
Steven Holm will retire as non executive director and Chairman of the Remuneration committee, also with immediate effect. These changes were prompted by recent amendments to the Israeli legal and regulatory framework which, inter alia, meant that Holm no longer fully satisfied the Independence criteria set out for non executive directors for public companies.
Regenbogen (44), an Israeli citizen, is a Certified Public Accountant and has spent over 20 years in the accounting, banking, corporate finance and real estate sectors working in Israel and Eastern Europe. He held a number of senior posts at Eurom Bank between 2001 and 2006 (currently known as Bank Leumi Romanie and previously known as Dacia Felix Bank). He was president of the Executive Committee and a member of the Board of Directors as well as president of the Assets and Liabilities Committee and member of the Credit, Risk and Audit committees. Previously he was Head of the Strategy and Financial Management Department at Dacia Felix Bank, a post he held from 1999 to 2000.
From 2007 to 2014 AleRegenbogenxander has been working as an independent consultant and project manager.
Nigel Wright, Chairman of MirLand, says: "We are saddened that Steven Holm has been obliged to resign from our Board. He has been a highly valued colleague for a number of years and we will miss his wise counsel. I would like to thank Steven for his hard work and considerable achievements on the company's behalf.
“However, I am delighted to welcome Alexander Regenbogen to our Board. I am confident that we will benefit from his extensive experience and proven track record and that he will be an invaluable asset as we continue to create value for our shareholders."
