REE Automotive has appointed two new independent members to its board, with the addition of Michal Brikman and Lilach Geva-Harel.

The company also announced the resignation of Ari Raved from REE’s board after more than seven years service.

“As REE continues to grow and execute on our business plan, we welcome new independent board members, who will contribute to the efforts to guide our vision and realise our goal of becoming the cornerstone of e-mobility,” said REE co-founder and CEO, Daniel Barel.

“Lilach and Michal bring to their role as independent directors strong and diverse expertise and leadership across the mobility, technology, energy and financial industries and we are grateful to Ari for his many years of service, strategic guidance, and role in growing REE to a public company.

“I look forward to continue working with our board of directors and executing our ESG vision as we advance towards commercialisation and drive toward a zero-emissions future.”

Geva-Harel leads global compliance as well as regulatory and government relations as EVP and Global General counsel of ICL Group, a global minerals company. She has more than two decades of leadership experience advising boards, leading corporate governance and operating in complex regulatory environments.

Brikman specialises in financial and business structures, deals and corporate governance, serving as a board member for Partner Communications. She has significant experience on public company boards, including positions which include head of the Technology Committee for Union Bank and head of the Audit, Finance and Compensation Committees for Israel’s largest public institutional investment houses.

Headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel, REE has subsidiaries in the US, the UK, Japan and Germany, while the company plans to open an American headquarters and first integration centre in Austin, Texas.
