Dan Hochberg brings broad experience with several technology companies at different stages, starting from COMET Intl. where he ran the local US subsidiary, turning it profitable within a short period of time. Hochberg established and ran RADVISION operations in Asia Pacific, where he was in charge of both its technology and networking solutions.

Prior to that, she established and managed a large distributed team maintaining overall responsibility for the design and development of all projects based on the OSS Cramer set of products. Roth also is fluent in six languages.

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.”
