Roughly one year ago, CloudWedge started a column called Geek of the Week. In this column, we award the ‘Geek of the Week’ honor to someone from our news posts of that week we feel have done something that deserves special mention or praise. This is either directly through their actions or those of their companies. This award is a certification of honor as the receiver is considered to be a ‘cloud leader.’
After extensive back and forth with the CloudWedge team, we have decided to award this week’s honors to Mati Cohen – CTO of Panaya. While the recent hiring of CEO Doron Gerstel will undoubtedly help the company grow even further due to his vast experience in the field, it is Mati who has been around since Panaya’s inception and has guided the company’s innovation and technologies. This was a key factor as to why Panaya was purchased this week by Infosys for $200 million.
Mati holds a B.Sc. in Industrial Management from the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at Ben Gurion University.
