Tel Aviv, Israel, -Agilite has announced the appointment of Eric Marks as Naval SOF Sales Manager and Lone Soldier Liaison at Agilite. Marks previously served for five years as an operator in one of The Israel Defense Forces' most elite Special Forces Units.
Marks took part in countless missions during his time with the Israeli Navy and will use his background and experience in his new position.
Having grown up in North Carolina, USA, Marks is a dual US/Israeli citizen and was classified as a "Lone Soldier," the IDF's term for troops who were raised overseas and serve without family members in the country.
One of very few American citizens to ever serve in such an elite Israeli unit, he will serve as liaison to current Lone Soldiers serving all over the IDF and address the equipment needs of them and their units.
"It's an honor to join the team at Agilite, after using their gear for years I'm proud to represent it and to contribute to its development. I am particularly excited to work with the Lone Soldier community whom I have been a part of for several years."
