AVI’s mission is to enhance public understanding of Israel by organizing week-long missions to the nation for influential religious and political leaders, journalists, entertainers and athletes. On each AVI mission the guests learn about the vibrancy and dynamism of Israel, and also about key challenges faced by the Jewish state. They meet with senior government officials, military leaders and diplomats, and visit cultural, religious, and historical sites around the country. During and after the mission, these influencers broadcast, tweet, blog, or give interviews about their experiences in Israel.

Mr. Gordon has worked closely with Irwin Katsof, Director of AVI, for over 15 years and is honored by his appointment to this influential position. “I’ve dedicated much of my career in support of charitable efforts and the mission of AVI is very close to my heart,” Mr. Gordon said. “It is more important than ever that the younger generation understands the diversity and beauty of Israel, and also the unprecedented difficulties the country faces. Collaborating with high profile public personalities helps share the complexities and beauty of Israel with the world.”

Mr. Gordon is a Managing Director in MGO LLP’s business management practice. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School and has previously been a leader of UBS’s Private Client Group and a SVP at Morgan Stanley. He has dedicated his career to collaborating with ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families with respect to a full range of financial advice, emphasizing alternative investment strategies, asset protection and private family foundations. Over the past 25 years, Mr. Gordon has developed a long and seasoned record of success working with prominent personalities, including world boxing champion Manny Pacquioa, rap icon MC Hammer, and former CEO of Apple Gil Amelio.
