Israel (Izzy) TapoohiIsrael (Izzy) Tapoohi, widely regarded as one of Israelís most innovative and successful business executives, became president and CEO of Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds on October 31.

In welcoming Tapoohi, Chairman of the Board Richard Hirsch said, "Mr. Tapoohiís forward-looking business acumen, together with his heartfelt Zionist ideals, make him exceptionally well-qualified to elevate the Bonds organization to new levels of achievement."

Born in Israel and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Tapoohi was a Zionist activist in New South Wales and served as chairman of the local aliyah organization. In 1979, he immigrated with his family to Israel.

Tapoohi brings an outstanding level of experience to the Bonds organization. Highly regarded for his private sector expertise and insights, he served as a top executive for many of Israelís most prominent companies, including chairman of the board of Africa-Israel Investments and executive chairman of the board of Bezeq, Israelís telecommunications provider and largest corporation.

A proactive entrepreneur, Tapoohi was founder and CEO of InQSOFT, Ltd., which evaluated early-stage start-ups and provided recommendations to top-level international investors.

As president and CEO of Israel Bonds, Tapoohi said his agenda will be to "deliver a two-part message: Israel bonds are not only an important means of connecting with Israel, but also excellent additions to investment portfolios."

Emphasizing this approach, Tapoohi said, "Every day in Israel brings forth new technological breakthroughs with extraordinary implications for the entire world. When people invest in Israel bonds, they instantly become partners in this ongoing success, while acquiring securities that make good business sense Ė a powerful and compelling motivation to buy Israel bonds."
