REE Automotive Appoints 2 New Board Members

Expanded board enhances financial and governance expertise supporting ESG commitments.


REE Automotive Ltd., a leader in e-mobility, has expanded its board of directors, appointing two new independent members. The additional board members deepen and diversify its leadership as the company progresses toward technology maturation and commercial production in 2023.


REE has appointed seasoned veterans Michal Brikman and Lilach Geva-Harel, who bring a wealth of public company financial, corporate governance and sustainability expertise. The board also announced the resignation of Ari Raved from REE’s board after more than seven years of distinguished service. 

Daniel Barel, REE co-founder and CEO, commented, “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 realize our goal of becoming the cornerstone of e-mobility. 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 commercialization 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 specialty minerals company. She has more than two decades of leadership experience advising boards, leading corporate governance and operating in complex regulatory environments.

Brikman specializes in financial and business structures, business deals and corporate governance, serving as a board member for Partner Communications. She has significant experience on public company boards, including positions that 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.
