About Amir Shaked
Amir started his career in 1984 as one of the first employees of Comverse Technology, Inc. as a software engineer, and later as director of three of the company's four R&D groups. Amir moved to the US 18 years ago to become Comverse's first product management director, and then their VP of Business Development in the Americas.
