Yehuda Holtzman, the outgoing CEO, commented, "I congratulate Amir on his appointment as new CEO. Two years ago, I was brought to OTI to bring about a turnaround in the business, and we have successfully shifted towards a recuring revenue, software-as-a-service model, focusing on a new promising path towards long-term growth and profitability. I felt it was now the time to hand the reigns back to an OTI insider. With his long experience at OTI, Amir knows OTI's customers exceptionally well, and I believe Amir will be a very strong CEO and will be able to bring about accelerated revenue growth." 

Amir Eilam, incoming CEO, commented, "I would like to thank Yehuda for his tremendous efforts for OTI and commend him on his success at stabilizing and refocusing us towards growth.
