Scopus Video Networks Appoints Eitan Koter President

Scopus Video Networks, a provider of digital video networking solutions, has appointed Eitan Koter to the position of president. The company also has appointed Ovadia Cohen vice president of business development and marketing communications.

Koter, promoted from his position as vice president of sales, will be responsible for enhancing Scopus' business operations and improving the synergy of sales and marketing. Cohen was promoted from vice president of marketing and will be in charge of expanding Scopus' partnerships and defining Scopus' next-generation strategy. Both report to Scopus' CEO, Dr. Yaron Simler.

Koter joined Scopus in 2001. Prior to Scopus, he served as senior sales manager of the Next Generation Telephony and DCME division of ECI Telecom (now Veraz Networks), where he was responsible for the company's sales activities in India, Africa and Israel, and for its global service sales activities.

Cohen co-founded Scopus in 1995. Upon joining Tadiran (Scopus' parent company until 1999) in 1984, Cohen worked as a systems engineer in communications systems and signal processing, and served as marketing manager of the Data Links department. Cohen was in charge for the spinoff of Tadiran's military technology to Scopus' commercial business.

"These management changes are designed to further the company's strategic focus on system solutions, reinforce its growing status in the OEM market, and strengthen Scopus' ability to further capitalize on the emerging opportunities stemming from market convergence," Simler said in a statement. "Eitan's proven organizational skills and drive will enable Scopus to better execute its strategic direction, while Ovadia's invaluable knowledge, as an industry veteran, will serve to further drive Scopus' growth strategy, expand strategic partnerships and develop next generation platforms."
