    1. and 2. are both correct. (You've missed a "He" in 2.)


    There is a slight difference of meaning.
    1. means he joined the company in 2000 as a vice president.
    2. means he has been a vice president since 2000, but allows for the possibility that he was there before that in some other job.

    He's been working as vice-president (or 'a vice-president' if there are more than one vice-presidents in the company) for Rashi Ltd since 2000.
