Israel ‘Izzy’ Tapoohi
President and CEO of Israel Bonds
Israel “Izzy” Tapoohi, president and chief executive officer of Development Corporation for Israel/Israel Bonds, continues his outstanding sales record as well as makes the investment vehicle available to diverse audiences.
Before 2012, his first full year with Israel Bonds, annual U.S. sales had remained in the $600 million range for several years. In his first year, sales topped $800 million, followed by three consecutive years (2013-2015) of domestic sales exceeding $1 billion.
“This is a tremendous vote of confidence in Israel’s economy, which, over the years, has proven to be among the world’s most resilient,” Tapoohi stated in 2015. “As global economies falter, Israel’s economy remains strong.”
