Sandton, South Africa and Holon, Israel: Sapiens International Corporation, (NASDAQ and TASE: SPNS), a leading global provider of software solutions for the insurance industry, with a growing presence in the financial services sector, announced 3 August that it has significantly increased its investment in the South African market by establishing a new head office in Sandton, South Africa.
 
“The establishment of the new office and recruitment of local staff will enable Sapiens to better support our roster of leading insurance clients in South Africa and attract new ones,” said Roni Al-Dor, president and CEO of Sapiens. “South Africa offers us an opportunity for growth.”

He possesses extensive knowledge of the local insurance landscape and has helped large organizations transform throughout his career.
 
“Many South African insurers have expressed concern about their legacy systems and are considering their options for the future,” said Tessendorf. “I am excited to combine my market expertise and long-standing relationships in the South African region with Sapiens’ leading portfolio, to help insurers succeed in a quickly evolving market.”
