Michael Gendelman, VP of Research & Development, CYE, is an avid photographer who enjoys taking photos of winter and autumn landscapes. You can see him with his Canon DSLR with the classic 24-105mm lens clicking brilliance when he is not building world-class software engineering teams. His experience has accelerated the growth of CYE’s flagship SaaS platform, and his ability to add the right Cyber Security context and knowledge for the engineers building CYE’s product also helps the different employees stay connected to CYE’s business KPIs and to solving customer problems.
According to Michael, a leader is only as strong as the people around him and the communication channels. “I believe that I have aided in the transformation of communication in the organization by ensuring clarity for the leaders around me and reinforcing a culture of inclusion and openness both internally (in the R&D department) and across departments,” says Michael. “One of my central focus points upon joining CYE was building a resilient hiring and onboarding process which focused on a combination of hiring and developing the best junior engineers as well as attracting top-tier talents which have undoubtedly aided in the growth of CYE.”
