Benny Landa, Chairman of the Landa Group (Rehovot, Israel), has announced the appointment of Asher Levy to the position of Active Chairman of Landa Digital Printing, the largest of the Group’s 18 companies. Landa Digital Printing (LDP), which started as a ‘spinoff’ of Landa Labs 10 years ago, now employs some 600 people and is in an accelerating growth phase as it ramps up delivery of its Nanographic Printing Presses worldwide, the company recently pointed out. “I’m very excited to be joining the Board of Landa Digital Printing as Active Chairman,” said Levy. “I’m amazed by this company’s technology and products, which are already starting to disrupt the printing market. I look forward to helping the remarkably talented and dedicated team of people at Landa Digital Printing to fulfill the company’s vision of leading the trillion-dollar printing industry in the digital era.”

Landa added: “2019 was a pivotal year for Landa Digital Printing, which saw its first press installations being enthusiastically received by customers. The company is now poised for unprecedented growth and is deserving of a dedicated Active Chairman. I’m therefore very pleased to announce that I’ve invited Asher Levy to partner with me and my fellow board members as Active Chairman of Landa Digital Printing. Asher is an accomplished executive whose decades-long career helped Orbotech become a world market leader in its field. As CEO of Orbotech, Asher grew the company to become a billion-dollar-plus enterprise. He brings exactly the right skills set, experience and leadership to help guide LDP and its management through a rapid growth curve. On behalf of my fellow shareholders, Altana and SKion, and myself, we warmly welcome Asher to the Board.”

Yishai Amir.

Yishai Amir, who has been LDP’s CEO for the past four years, is stepping down. “During the past four years, I’ve been at the helm of Landa Digital Printing. During that time, it has transitioned from being a company with great technology, to a company with great products,” he said. “I’m very proud of having been part of that transformation. I’ve decided that now is the best time for me to proceed to my next challenges, and to make way for a successor at the company.”

Benny Landa further commented: “I would like to thank Yishai for his contributions to the company and wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours.”
