Yoav Stern commented, “The one clear impression I have gained during my first few weeks in DVTel, is of the caliber, quality and dedication of our teams. The new members will serve as a proper supplement to our management. They are already well integrated with the rest of us, and will help guide DVTel to the next level. This group of savvy executives joining DVTel encourages me, as they recognize the opportunity and the potential that DVTel has. I am looking forward to working together in building this dynamic, industry-leading company.”

Stern added, “We thank Yossi Koren, who is leaving the company, for his contribution as DVTel’s CFO over the last few years. He played a major role in the past, and he has agreed to continue helping us with certain financial projects in the few months to come. We wish Yossi success in his new endeavors.”
