Tel Aviv / Zurich, 1 February 2017 – SHL Telemedicine Ltd. (SIX Swiss Exchange: SHLTN, OTCPK: SMDCY) (“SHL”), a leading provider and developer of advanced personal telemedicine solutions, announced today that the Board of Directors has accepted the resignation of Yuval Shaked, SHL’s CEO, and has appointed a search committee to look for a new CEO. Mr. Shaked has committed to continue his employment with SHL during the full six months notice period, to the extent required, to ensure a smooth transition with the new CEO, once elected.
SHL’s Chairman Uzi Blumensohn said: “On behalf of the Board of Directors of SHL, I thank Yuval for his fully committed service and for his contribution to SHL and I wish him good luck in the new challenges he has elected to accept. SHL’s strong Israeli and global leadership team is fully committed to continue and implement SHL’s streamlining program and strategic plans.”
Yuval Shaked said: “There is a new management team in place which will continue to implement the strategic and operational priorities we defined in the course of last year. I wish to thank Mr. Blumensohn, SHL board members, management and employees for their support and cooperation.”
Furthermore, SHL Telemedicine Ltd. announced today that Mr. Doron Steiger has stepped down from his position as board member with immediate effect.
