Israel Ganot is the cofounder, president and CEO of Gazelle. But it's the intangibles he brings to the company ‒ his passion for recycling and reCommerce, his devotion to customer service, and his personal touch with employees ‒ that make the difference. Israel was born in Peru, raised in Israel, and came of age in America, where he's spent two decades in online and offline retail. During six years at eBay and PayPal he was instrumental in the company's expansion to Europe, Latin America and Asia. Israel also served as Director of Finance & Operations at eBay UK Ltd., helping to scale that local business to $300 million. From Gazelle's start, Israel's intent has been to unlock the value in everyday objects and help the world rethink what it means to buy, own and sell electronics. Since he became President and CEO in 2008, Gazelle has grown into America's largest reCommerce service, with more than 1 million electronic tradeins. Boston Business Journal chose him as Emerging Leader for its Best Green Practices awards in 2012 and Ernst & Young named him a 2009 Entrepreneur of the Year finalist for his early accomplishments at Gazelle.
