Bennett joined the Knesset after careers in the Israeli hi-tech sector, public service and the Israel Defense Forces.
In 1999, Bennett co-founded and served as CEO of Cyota, an anti-fraud software company, until it was sold to RSA for $145 million in 2005. Today, Cyota (now RSA-Security) employs over 300 people in Israel.
After Cyota was sold, Bennett turned to public service, where he served as Chief of Staff to then-opposition leader Benyamin Netanyahu, contributing to the growth of Likud from 12 MKs to 27. Bennett was also the leader of Likud’s education reform team.
As a commander in one of the IDF’s most elite combat commando units, Bennett led a team on counter-terrorism missions. Today, he is a Major (Res.) in the IDF commando unit, Sayeret Matkal.
He holds an LLB from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
As Chamber functions are generally sold out, we suggest that you book without delay to avoid disappointment.
