Roy, who lives in Kiryat Ono, Israel with his wife and 3 kids, loves music, plays the piano and used to work at a famous record store back when vinyl records were all the rage.
He is also an ardent runner. “It is my habit to wake up early every other morning to run with my team. Running for me is the time to catch up with friends, meditate during long runs and set new goals and challenges such as running a few marathons," says Roy.
Throughout his tech career, he has shown the same goal-setting attitude, competitive spirit, long-term planning, and determination as he does on the running track. He aims to cover a long-distance journey on the road to technological innovation.
Passionate about technology but even more passionate about people
When asked what he is passionate about, Roy says “I am passionate about turning industry-changing technologies into business drivers. But even more than that, I am passionate about people. In every step of my career whether, it was managing startups, building a security division, or rebuilding products to the cloud which led to the development of MS360 and CatalogONE right here in Amdocs - I was engaged in both creating and introducing new technology and the right teams, its culture and the individuals to lead it. In every company I was in, it was my focus and drive to see the people grow with the company, enable them to choose the career paths they were passionate about, and set the stage for them to make an impact.”
