During the last six years, Mrs. Silene has focused on satellite business technology, dealing with large international accounts and developing partnerships with corporations, carriers, and oil and gas companies.

“As we continue to grow our satellite communications business on a worldwide scale, building a strong local presence is essential to our business strategy," said Lior Weinstein, Deputy President of Orbit Satellite Communications.
