“I’ve very much enjoyed my tenure at Earnix, leading the company to consistent year over year growth, and strongly believe in our people and products as a change agent for financial services companies,” comments Ziv. “I believe now is the time to move on to my next endeavor as the company prepares for its next stage of international expansion. I firmly believe I am leaving the company in very capable hands with Robin and expect that the company will continue the rapid global growth Earnix has experienced in the last few years.”
