After almost two years as VP Sales at Leverate, Shlomi Lifshitz has left the company to pursue other avenues. Mr. Lifshitz has embarked on the next step of his career, leveraging his sales pedigree to become the new VP of International Sales at Pepperi, a leading SaaS all-in-one mobile commerce platform for brands and wholesalers. The software company focuses on optimizing all aspects of offline and online B2B sales.
Shlomi Lifshitz has an extensive background in global sales. He began his career at NICE Ltd, working in product management and presales for seven years. In 2007, he became Director of Sales at Telmap, remaining in this position until 2011. Mr. Lifshitz then enjoyed two stints as Head of Sales and Business Development at Commtouch and TradAir, between 2011-2013. Prior to arriving at Leverate in January 2016, he spent two years as VP Sales ROW at Dome9 Security.
Changes at Leverate
Leverate continues to undergo structural and operational changes. In the summer of 2017, Leverate appointed Yasha Polyakov as its new CEO. He immediately began to implement his vision for the company’s future. In October, the trading technology provider introduced a new services department, under the name Acxelr8, focused on improving a wide range of functions and services for retail brokerages. The change has brought about a reshuffling of personnel in an effort to accommodate the growing and interactive needs of the company and its clients.
The global buzz surrounding the cryptocurrency market has also impacted Leverate and its operational structure. Shortly after his appointment as CEO, Mr. Polyakov spoke with Finance Magnates about the direction in which he plans to steer the company. “My vision is to step up from the forex industry, although it’s our basic product. I would like us to expand to new fields, and crypto is definitely one of them,” he said.
It is apparent that Leverate is constantly going through changes, and adapting to persistently changing market trends.
