In his new role, Arev will lead Capitolis’ engineering efforts globally and drive the continued development of the company’s next-generation suite of products and services. Arev is based in Tel Aviv and reports directly to Mandelzis.
Arev joins from LawGeex, where he served as vice president of research and development. Previously, he held C-suite and executive roles at a variety of companies, including Skybox Security, Cyren, HexaTier, and Global-e.
Arev succeeds Igor Teleshevsky, who co-founded Capitolis and led the company’s engineering efforts since 2017. In his new role, Teleshevsky will focus on client onboarding and support. He is relocating to the New York City office.
As chief business development officer, Geller will lead efforts to extend the company’s rapid growth by pursuing new partnerships and collaborations with the larger ecosystem of technology providers and trading platforms in capital markets. Geller joined Capitolis as chief product officer in 2017.
