I am leaving Bezeq Group with a huge sense of satisfaction, after many years of hard work, together with excellent management teams. Over the years, Bezeq has become a part of me, and I am leaving a robust, healthy, and growing company with consistent growth in revenues and profits, and with a solid balance sheet. Bezeq is a strong company with excellent infrastructure, high customer appreciation, a winning management team, and an excellent corporate culture. More than anything, I will miss the amazing employees of Bezeq and its subsidiaries, who are a real source of pride for me. They are the heart and soul of the Company.

I wish to thank my partners in the journey – the excellent management team, the Company's employees, the board of directors, particularly the chairman, Tomer Raved, and the controlling shareholder, Searchlight Capital Partners, for their confidence in me and for their cooperation."
