Prior to joining Red Bend, she held executive positions at Scitex, Amdocs and Siano Mobile Silicon. She has experience in all aspects of finance including board and investor relations, operational planning, forecasts, control, accounting, taxation and treasury.

“Dvora’s extensive finance experience will help us leverage our successful business in mobile as we continue to grow in the automotive and enterprise markets. This is a pivotal time for Red Bend, and we’re fortunate to have such a strong financial leader as Dvora as we expand our reach into new markets and launch new services,” said Yoram Salinger, CEO, Red Bend Software.

As the EVP of Delivery, Geva will lead Red Bend’s delivery organization, managing all aspects of customer service including project management and support.
