Steakholder Foods Ltd. (Nasdaq: STKH), (formerly MeaTech 3D: MITC), an international deep-tech food company at the forefront of the cultivated meat industry, is excited to announce the promotion of a key member of its executive team. The current Vice President of Finance, Mr. Eitan Noah, will be assuming the position of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, as its current Chief Financial Officer, Guy Hefer, has decided to step down from his role.
Eitan Noah, B.A., CPA, will assume the CFO role on March 23, 2023, following the publication of the Company’s annual report. Mr. Noah has been the Company’s Vice President of Finance since January 2021. He is an integral member of the company’s finance team, demonstrating exceptional leadership and financial acumen during his tenure, with a deep understanding of the company’s operations, financials, and strategic priorities.

We’re excited to continue working with him in this new stage of his path at Steakholder Foods.”
Mr. Noah’s appointment follows the decision of Mr. Guy Hefer to step down from the Chief Financial Officer role, for personal reasons.

Serving as CFO has been an honor and a privilege, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked alongside such a talented and dedicated team. I am proud of the progress that we have made together during my tenure. We have successfully navigated a rapidly changing market environment, and I am confident that our company will continue to thrive under the leadership of our talented executive team and the dedicated employees who work tirelessly every day to drive our success.
