DVTEL President and CEO comments:
“We are thrilled to welcome Win to the DVTEL Board of Directors. Win has been a supporter and believer in DVTEL since its inception, a commitment that has shown in practice, time and time again over the years. While in December 2014 DVTEL has completed the best year in its history, and moreover, Q1 of 2015 shows approximately 20% growth over last year, I do believe that Win’s closer involvement as a board member will help us further in the near future. This is an exciting time for DVTEL as we continue to advance our technology portfolio, and drive new levels of growth and efficiency throughout the organisation.” said Yoav Stern, President and CEO, DVTEL. “But no less importantly, I want to thank Edmundo for helping me personally during the last 4 years. Edmundo is a bright and considerate individual that is able to combine confidence and methodological thinking conveyed in the most constructive and effective manner. He helped us consistently with his teamwork approach, financial expertise and business acumen, which have been incredibly beneficial to me personally and to DVTEL throughout his service on the Board of Directors. We wish Edmundo the best of luck and success, and I definitely look forward to him staying a “close friend of DVTEL” as he is currently Operating Partner at Columbus Nova Technology Partners, a venture capital fund sponsored by Columbus Nova”.
