I am a practical CEO with 20+ years of experience in preparing organizations to scale. To date, I have led 12 companies and scaled businesses from millions to billions in revenue and valuation.
Throughout my life and career, I lived in 11 countries on 3 continents and worked in 7 industries. As a consequence I speak fluently 6 languages .
I was born in Eastern Europe and emigrated to Israel in my early twenties. Upon completion of my military service in the Israeli Armored Corps, I started my career in the Israeli Aircraft Industries while serving in the Israeli Army Reserves. I started turning around and scaling organizations as CEO in 1999.
I am a speaker for Vistage, the world largest executive coaching organization. I am also founder and managing partner of Kish & Partners Consulting, a consulting firm that specializes in Business Execution Education.
I had a love affair with school, periodically going back to upgrade my business knowledge. I earned my Masters in Business from Stanford Business School, my Advanced Certificate in Strategy and Innovation from MIT Sloan School of Business and my Executive Certificate in Industrial Administration from the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University. Way before that I earned my Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnics of Bucharest.
And, as I am always preaching what I practice, I am CEO at Nanoramic Labs, a nano-materials company based Boston, MA
