Abed Assli

Vice President

Age: 33

Abed Assli holds both a B.A. and M.A. in Economics from the University of Haifa and was a Koret-Milken Institute Fellow for two years.

During his first year as a fellow, he developed an innovative financial model for funding higher education in Israel and worked in the Knesset with the late MK Nadia Chilou on an array of issues concerning agricultural, educational, and economic development.

In his second year, Abed worked independently on the Milken Institute's Northern Israel project. He focused on adapting and localizing the idea of a tourism assessment district to fund infrastructure for tourism. Such a district has enormous funding implications for Northern Israel.

Abed joined Reut in September 2009 and is currently VP and Team Leader of the Western Galilee Regional Development team. Prior to this role he was Team Leader of the Technological Innovation team, formulating new strategies for the Israeli tech industry.
