The People Behind the Company

Lior Avitan, CEO & Co-Founder

Lior has almost two decades of experience in management of multi-million-dollar, multi-disciplinary technology projects at Elbit Systems. Recognizing the issues jobsites face in relation to cranes and complex operations, he saw the potential for Elbit technology to bring value to this market – and so the idea for UltraWis was born, with Lior at the helm from the very start.
