Former Post staffer Eli Groner named PMO director-general

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu named Eli Groner, Israel’s former economic attache in Washington and a former Jerusalem Post economics reporter, as director-general of the Prime Minister’s Office.

The American-born Groner, 44, is expected to assume his new position in the coming weeks, after the Cabinet approves his appointment.

“Groner’s rich experience in the various positions he has held in both the public and private sectors has led me to select him for this significant post in advancing the Israeli economy,” Netanyahu said in announcing the appointment. “Eli will assist me in promoting the many reforms that we are planning, in increasing competition in the economy, in cutting bureaucracy, in making the government more efficient in cooperation with the private sector, and in developing unique growth engines for the Israeli economy."
