Prior to that he served the board of directors of Octavian, Inc., a software vendor in the wealth and investment management industry and served as CEO and president of the company. Before that, Mr. Ghez was CEO and president of Sheer Networks, Inc. whose growth he led toward a successful acquisition by Cisco Systems in 2005. He served as a vice president and customer business executive for global accounts at Amdocs, where he was responsible for governing key customer accounts. Mr. Ghez also served as general manager, EMEA for the Computer Associates InterBiz financial unit. He has lived in major business centers around the globe and is fluent in French, Italian, English and Hebrew.
In a meeting with employees, Amir Aharoni, outgoing CEO and co-founder of Mobixell welcomed Mr. Ghez, commenting, “Mobixell has been my life for the last 12 years. I, and everyone connected with Mobixell are fortunate to have someone like Klod coming on board. I will miss the day to day at Mobixell. But I look forward to the increasing success of the company and its brilliant staff.”
“A company’s strength lies within the quality of its products and services and in the commitment of employees to the company,” added Ghez. “Amir served as a strong role model for his staff, driving the company forward for 12 years since founding Mobixell. That’s an unusual accomplishment for someone like Amir with a reputation as a serial entrepreneur. With the board and management’s commitment to excellence and the top notch team of professionals at Mobixell, I am confident that, together, we can mobilize the company’s potential and multiply its achievements significantly over the next few years.”
Lothar Pauly, chairman of the Mobixell board of directors, stated that, “Klod comes with the background and a set of proven skills that will prove vital in achieving our near and longer term growth goals.
