Israel Awards ’Knight Of Quality Government’ Title To Major-General Doron Almog
Washington, DC, June 19, 2007 – Athlone Global Security Inc. is pleased to announce that its founder and co-chairman, Major-General Doron Almog (Res.), has been awarded by Israel the title of “Knight of Quality Government 2007” in the category of Military and Security.
Major-General Almog received this prestigious award in recognition and gratitude for his unique contribution, both in his military service and his civil life, to the defense of the weak and the hopeless and to the strength of Israel’s quality of government and society.
In the aftermath of the second Lebanon war, General Almog stood as head of the investigation committee of the kidnapping affair of the two reserve unit soldiers: Goldwasser and Regev, by the Hezbollah organization. In his resolutions he demonstrated courage, decisiveness and integrity and did not evade tough personal conclusions towards those responsible. He courageously stated his opinions in total honesty, and Israel has graciously valued the General’s view.
General Almog founded Athlone Global Security in Israel in 2005, and has assembled a world renowned team of security technology experts. He played an integral role in bringing Athlone to the U.S. market, and developing a strategic partnership with the Chesapeake Innovation Center, a homeland security company incubator in the DC area that is co-sponsored by the NSA and some large U.S. security technology integrators.
Since its inception, General Almog and his team have successfully secured Athlone’s first six portfolio investments in a variety of very unique and promising Israeli HLS technology companies, which are being introduced into the U.S. market. This investment portfolio forms the base for the Athlone Global Security LP Fund offering which is currently in progress.
Major-General (Res.) Doron Almog served 35 active years (1969-2004) in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Throughout his military career and during the course of four wars, General Almog has gained tremendous experience in combat and special clandestine operations in the ongoing war against terrorism. In his capacity as a general, he has applied the management principle of “Learning Organization” to the IDF, as well as the practical strategy in limited conflict known as “Cumulative Deterrence Strategy.”
General Almog served in all command roles from platoon commander to brigade commander in the prestigious Para brigade, and participated in numerous combat and special clandestine operations. In 1976, he participated in the Entebbe rescue operation as a commander of the Para-Commander unit. In 1983-1985, General Almog participated in operations that brought approximately 6,000 Jews from Ethiopia to Israel, their new home. In 1996, General Almog was appointed head of the IDF’s Doctrine and Training Division, where he pioneered strategy-defining doctrinal seminars and a simulation system. In 2000-2003, he served as head of the IDF’s Southern Command, which succeeded in preventing all attempts to breach the security barrier surrounding the Gaza Strip, and was also honored by the International Organization for Standardization for exceptional management.
A pioneer in the homeland security technology marketplace, Athlone Global Security Inc. (Athlone) was founded in 2005 and invests in emerging growth companies specializing in imperative homeland security solutions. As a private investor, the company seeks early stage homeland security companies currently located in Israel, because of the breadth and sophistication of the homeland security expertise in that country. Athlone has a team and infrastructure established in Tel Aviv, and also is located in the Washington D.C. area.
