Yoel Razvozov joins Joblio Inc.’s Board of Advisors

The former Israeli Minister of Tourism and Knesset Member brings a wealth of knowledge of immigration, finance, protection of human rights, cross-cultural integration, and cross-border relations to Joblio’s diverse panel of expert advisors.
Tel Aviv, Israel — Joblio Inc. (joblio.co), the transparent and tech-enabled ethical recruitment platform for international talent, has announced the appointment of Yoel Razvozov to the company’s Board of Advisors.
Razvozov, who was the Minister of Tourism of the State of Israel from 2021-2022 and a Member of the Knesset for 10 years until his political retirement in 2023, is an expert in matters of immigration, finance, and cross-border relations. He also is a world-recognized Judo champion, having served as captain of Israel’s national team and representing Israel in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
An immigrant himself, Razvozov’s family moved to Israel from Russia when he was 11, following the fall of the Soviet Union. His personal and career accomplishments have positioned him to make a meaningful impact on Joblio’s prestigious Board of Advisors.
A graduate of Reichman University’s Faculty of Business Administration with a specialization in Finance, Razvozov’s roles in the Knesset included Chair of the Committee for Immigration, Absorption, and the Diaspora. He sponsored laws to lower the cost of living and worked to promote the integration of immigrants into the job market as well as into the public health and education systems.
As Minister of Tourism, Razvozov spearheaded support packages for the tourism and hotel industries, and he pushed for the opening of direct flights to Israel from new destinations around the world once the country reopened its borders to tourists in 2022. He also served as a Chair of Joint Governmental Economic Committees with Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Georgia and was responsible for promoting economic relations with these countries. Razvozov also served as Chair and Director of the Israel Olympic Committee from 2008 to 2013.
“From sports to politics, I have always looked out for the underdog, working to help those who otherwise might get lost in the system,” Razvozov said. “I very much look forward to continuing that work in this next chapter of my life, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve on Joblio’s esteemed Board of Advisors.”
Added Joblio CEO Jon Purizhansky: “Yoel deeply understands the vision and mission we have at Joblio, and he has unique personal and professional experiences to benefit our work in ethical and transparent international recruitment. We look forward to what will surely be a long and fruitful relationship with Yoel.”
