Glimpse Israel will be led by experienced Israel-based executives: Yoav Rubinstein - Chairman of Glimpse Israel and Eti Neaman - General Manager of Glimpse Israel.

Prior to that, she led the Israeli business development for the VR startup Actiview.io, which developed an assessment platform that allows an evaluator to gauge the behavioral and cognitive profile of an employment candidate through real-life simulations (using VR headsets) and predict the candidate's suitability for the position. Previously, she served as Chief Innovation & Digital Officer of the Hever Group, a leading Israeli human resource and translation firm, where she led the Innovation lab that scouted and evaluated startups to collaborate and offer innovative services to Israeli customers; also, she was the CEO and co-founder of Oran Interactive, a digital branding company.

Yoav Rubinstein, Chairman of Glimpse Israel, commented, "I am thrilled to work with the Glimpse team and Eti to help launch and build Glimpse Israel. I have witnessed Glimpse's growth firsthand and, in my view, it is now one of the leading VR & AR software and services companies in the world. Israel's immersive technology industry stands to benefit tremendously from Glimpse's entrance and, in time, it is only natural that Glimpse Israel become a core part of Glimpse's unique ecosystem of companies."
Eti Neaman, General Manager of Glimpse Israel, said, "Over the past few years, I have led a VR company in Israel and have developed a deep understanding of the segment and wide network of local connections with potential customers, companies and entrepreneurs. While the immersive industry is young, there is great growth potential, as with other Israeli tech industries in their formative years. Our goal is for Glimpse Israel to become the leading VR & AR company in Israel, with an enterprise software and services focus. This will be achieved by: a) opening the Israeli market to Glimpse's diverse and robust ecosystem of VR and AR companies targeting different industries, b) establishing a strong core of Israel-based subsidiary companies that have global expansion potential and will add to and expand Glimpse's ecosystem and capabilities, and c) leveraging Israeli technologies from tangent industries, such as AI and Crypto/Blockchain, to build cutting edge software solutions".
Lyron Bentovim, President & CEO of Glimpse said: "It is no secret that Israel is a global hub for technology and innovation. As an integral part of our international expansion, the establishment of Glimpse Israel represents a significant strategic market opportunity for us, and we have great expectations for it over time. We could not do it without a strong local team, and in that regard are very fortunate to have Eti and Yoav, two executives with the experience, industry knowledge, local expertise and drive required to build something unique and new."
