HPCwire's People to Watch 2011

Eyal Waldman

Eyal Waldman
Co-founder and CEO
Mellanox Technologies

Mr. Waldman is recognized as a key player in the success of Mellanox’s expansion efforts. Under Waldman’s expert guidance, Mellanox has established a sound reputation as leaders in the data center interconnect market. Apparently, Larry Ellison thinks so too, following Oracle’s recent strategic investment in Mellanox to strengthen it’s own solution stack. And with the recent announcement and anticipated closing of the Voltaire acquisition taking place in Q1, Waldman is definitely going to be a person to watch this year.

Mr. Waldman has served as Mellanox cofounder, CEO, president and chairman of Mellanox’s board of directors for over 10 years, from its inception in 1999 to a profitable public company with revenues in excess of $100 million. A hand’s on leader, it’s Waldman’s belief that his employees represent one of Mellanox most important assets, and he has stated he intends to retain the employee base and operating sites previously held by Voltaire.

Previously to Mellanox, Waldman served as vice president of engineering and was a cofounder of Galileo Technology Ltd., or Galileo, a semiconductor company, which was acquired by Marvell Technology Group Ltd. in January 2001. From August 1989 to March 1993, Mr. Waldman held a number of design and architecture related positions at Intel Corporation.

In light of his numerous achievements since founding Mellanox, and for exemplifying a prominent example of Israeli innovation, perseverance, and philanthropy, Waldman was recently named “CEO of the Year” by the Israeli Center for Management (IMC) in the category of large hi-tech Israeli companies. Waldman is also known as a philanthropist, and he supports multiple educational institutions and charities worldwide.

Mr. Waldman holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.
