He had been in our industry for over 10 years and was an excellent example of a thorough professional. I know I speak for many of us when I say that I looked to Amit as an important element in the future of the growth of our business over the next few years. Above all, he was a great guy and this is a huge loss for the entire industry and for EEMA. May Amit's soul rest in peace."
