MER Group bolsters its sales division: The company has appointed Marcelo Rubin, founder and former CEO of Netafim Peru, as VP of International Sales

Holon, September 17, 2017: MER Group (TASE: CMER), provider of telecom, security, intelligence, and cyber solutions, announced that as part of its efforts to bolster its sales activities, the company has appointed Marcelo Rubin as VP of International Sales.

Over the last decade, he has held senior sales and marketing positions in several companies in the SK Group. His most recent position was senior VP Marketing and Sales at IWI.

Beforehand, he founded Netafim Peru, a subsidiary of Netafim, and served as its CEO for four years. During that time, the company implemented some of the world’s largest agricultural turnkey projects, resulting in a sharp increase in volume turnover.

Marcelo will play an important role in creating strong bonds and partnerships between the MER Global sales division and the group’s various business units.
