On that date Nimrodi will succeed Alon Bar Shany as Active Chairman of the Board of Directors. Bar Shany will remain on the Board.

“Prior to committing to Highcon, I visited drupa.  Highcon’s presence there was vibrant and impactful, and the opportunity to get an overview of the industry was invaluable,” said Alcobi.  “I look forward to coming on board, meeting customers, employees, partners and customers, and to leading Highcon to ever-greater success.”
