While Weebit Nano may be a relatively young company, we have formed a powerful leadership team that is very well placed to drive the Company forward.”

Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen's career covers nearly 40 years of scientific research, technology development, and executive management in the “High Tech” industry. He started his career as a research scientist in GE’s R&D center in New York where he studied the use of silicon dioxide in semiconductor memory devices. He then led the spin-out of National Semiconductor’s fabrication, creating Tower Semiconductor, where he was CEO for nine years. Tower Semiconductor is a Nasdaq-listed, global specialty semiconductor foundry leader, with a market cap of US$3.4 billion.

Dr. Nissan-Cohen also played a key role in establishing a non-volatile technology startup, Saifun Semiconductor, which was eventually sold to Spansion.
