Guy Moskowitz, combining technical and sales talents in telecoms

Guy Moskowitz is a technology veteran whose areas of expertise include cybersecurity, telecommunications and software development. He has more than 20 years of leadership experience, having served as vice president and managing member of several high-tech companies, as well as local and international business experience in sales, marketing, customer service and business development.

Guy Moskowitz started working in 1990, first serving in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for five years as a senior project manager, managing distributed computing platforms and weapons development activities, drawing on his expertise in computing and project management.

In 1997, without rest, he drew on his outstanding capabilities and experience to join Amdocs, a global leader in telecom billing and customer service, as vice president. During his 7 years with the company, he held a variety of positions, ranging from large project management to director of marketing and sales.

He previously served as head of executive development and sales for the billing business unit, where he was responsible for shaping and developing the next-generation Amdocs billing platform and the Amdocs Content management platform. He is also a member of the Amdocs Senior Sales Management team, working with some of the world’s leading network infrastructure providers such as T-Mobile Group, Vodafone Group, Telefonica Spain, SFR, Vimpelcom, MTS, Proximus and Elisa Group. This not only accumulated solid work experience for him but also concluded a strong network of contacts.

Guy Moskowitz’s next job was as a Department Manager at Ness Digital Engineering, where he was responsible for master systems integrators and service providers, including managing the department responsible for the financial sector (insurance companies, banks, etc.), sales department management and market supervision, responsible for the development of P/L and launching the company’s offshore partnerships. Although he only worked in this company for 1 year and 8 months, the comprehensive work content supplemented some of his shortcomings as a professional manager and laid the foundation for his next career path.

In August 2005 and December 2007, he joined IXI Mobile, a leader in mobile consumer information devices and services. His first stint at IXI Mobile lasted two years and two months, where he served as general manager of all activities for IXI in EMEA, Central America, Latin America and Asia Pacific. Three months after leaving, he rejoined the IXI Group as Senior Vice President of Global Sales, responsible for annual sales strategy and execution as well as all IXI customer service, and seven months after that, he said goodbye to IXI Mobile.

In June 2008, he joined the Gilat Satellite Network, a world leader in providing Internet connectivity to rural areas, with international branches and offices in more than 16 locations. He served as Executive Vice President of Sales for the company for more than two and a half years.

The ‘all-in-one’ Coro, the current focus of entrepreneur

“Even in a down market with so much uncertainty, there are very good opportunities for companies that have the right solutions and focus on cost savings.”

Guy Moskowitz is also passionate about entrepreneurship, so after accumulating enough practical, business and management experience in large and small enterprises, he began to set up his own company, focusing on the development of telecommunications and security products for the private and government sectors.

He tried his hand at starting his own company, and in 1995 he became the founder and chief technology officer of Targetix, a real-time sniffer for the Internet world. Targetix can create personalised ads based on users’ real-time interests by encrypting their private information. Such thinking is common among Internet users today, but at the time it was an advanced and technologically savvy business model. Two years later, Targetix was acquired by a leading advertising technology company, and Guy Moskowitz’s entrepreneurial journey came to an end.

At the beginning of 2011, he started GRM INC. in Israel, mainly focusing on telecommunication, telemedicine, eGovernment, smart grid and other projects with social aspects. The company became a partner to LR Group and Mitrelli Group in Latin America.

With another 3 co-founders, Guy built their third company together in January 2015. Coro is an all-in-one cybersecurity platform that provides most of the protection needed by mid-sized businesses, headquartered in New York City with a sales office in Chicago and a support centre in Austin, Texas.

Among the world’s top cybersecurity mergers and acquisitions in 2023, mid-market cybersecurity platform Coro acquired office and remote work security provider Privatiza for an unknown amount on July 26, 2023.
