Orna Berry to head reorganized EMC operations
Dr. Berry will head EMC consolidated development centers.
Berry's appointment is part of EMC's restructuring of its development activity in Israel. The company will consolidate its two development centers, which currently operate in two locations and under separate management.
EMC's large development center in Herzliya Pituah is based on RSA Security Inc., which EMC acquired in mid-2006. This center is also partly based on Cyota, which was acquired by RSA before its acquisition by EMC. The second development center is in Ramat Gan, and is based on Israeli companies acquired by EMC over the years. EMC's Israeli development activities currently employ 500 people.
Since 2000, Berry has been an independent partner at Gemini Israel Funds. She headed the Israel Venture Capital Association in 2007-09, and was Chief Scientist in 1996-2000.
At EMC, Berry will be responsible for strategy and implementation of all activities of the Israeli development center.
Berry said, "I am committed to finding more opportunities for EMC to expand its presence in the market through new partners, ties with academe, and other initiatives relevant to EMC's strategy."
Berry will report to EMC SVP and CIO Sanjay Mirchandani. He said, "The R&D activity at the center of excellence in Israel is critical for maintaining EMC's leadership in the industry."
