The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced the appointment of two international wellness thought leaders to its Advisory Board.

Amir Alroy is co-founder of Welltech Ventures, a leading VC fund investing in wellness and health innovation headquartered in Tel Aviv. Veronica Schreibeis Smith, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, is CEO and founding principal of Vera Iconica, a US-based design brand focused on creating environments to support optimal living.

The two professionals have joined 14 other members (see full list here), including industry figures such as Anna Bjurstam, Mary Tabachhi and Franz Linzer.

“Amir has made countless industry-changing contributions to the Global Wellness Summit,” said Nancy Davis, chief creative officer and executive director of the GWS.

“He was co-chair of the 2022 Summit held in Israel and has introduced wellness and health innovations to businesses and investors around the globe.”

“Moreover, Veronica has brought the art and science behind designing experiences and rituals that enhance wellbeing to people around the world. She pushes the boundaries of how we work, play and live in healthy and surprising ways.”

Medika Life recently named Alroy one of the 30 top influencers transforming wellness in 2022-2023. Before founding Welltech, he served as CEO of A.Y.R.A.D Investments, a family-holding company that invested in dozens of hi-tech companies for over two decades.

He also holds an M.Sc. (with honours) in Sports Management from St. Thomas University, Miami, Florida, and a B.A from Reichman University in Israel.

In addition to being principal of Vera Iconica and practising architecture on four continents, Schreibeis Smith collaborates with regenerative hospitality brands, such as the House of Enlightenment in partnership with Deepak Chopra.

She also hosts the podcast Architecture of Being: Composing a Conscious Life, which explores the impact our surroundings have on longevity, vitality and happiness, and founded the Wellness Architecture & Design Initiative for the Global Wellness Institute.

“Each of the Advisory Board members brings singular talents and experience in the business of wellness to the Summit, from mental wellness to technology to hospitality and more,” said Davis.

“We’re honoured that Amir and Veronica are joining this prestigious group of wellness experts and visionaries and look forward to working with them to expand the reach and influence of the GWS.”
