In his last role Nadav was the Managing Director APAC for Trax Retail, a leading global retail technology company. Nadav has extensive experience in the region working in markets such as Greater China, Japan, Australia, India, Korea and SEA.
"As the weather becomes more volatile around the world and in APAC there is a growing need for a company like ClimaCell. What's most compelling about ClimaCell is the ability for executives and team leaders to make real business decisions based on future operational impact before it's too late," said Itach. "Our proprietary technology allows companies to harness MicroWeather to improve procedures and protocols based on historical, present, and future weather impact."
"When we started ClimaCell three years ago, the APAC region was an area of the world we were most excited to work with," said Shimon Elkabetz, CEO of ClimaCell. "With a growing number of operational business decisions relient on daily weather volatility, we're extremely motivated to bring our weather intelligence engine to the market. The APAC region is a thriving market for ClimaCell's technology and we're fortunate to have Nadav Itach strategically scale up our operations and offerings."
