I have the honor to write a recommendation on behalf of Elad Koren. Whoever comes across Elad’s path will feel lucky to have known him. He is brilliant and charismatic, two traits that are phenomenal when combined together. Elad manages highly talented indiviuals. He builds the people in his teams and unites them to contribute to the Product and to Customer-facing people, making his teams highly regarded in the company. With his sharply-honed analytical skills, Elad can understand and solve complex problems very quickly. I traveled with him to a customer site and instantly he discovered the root cause of a deep and long-standing problem at the customer implementation. Moreover, Elad can explain technical scenarios in a crystal-clear fashion that anybody can understand. With his great interpersonal skills, he can reduce tension with an irate customer or bring the light to any meeting internal or external, or just plain social. It is very rare that you meet or work with someone like Elad and he will always be valuable to any organization that he will be a part of.

Elad has the ability to take difficult problems and provide simple but controlled solutions. Every time I had a tough issue and had to go to the RSA AA CTO Office, Elad was there to here my problem and find an efficient way to solve it. Each of these problems required a sound control and solid oversight. He provided both. He is very dedicated to his customers working whatever time of the day required to co-ordinated the solutions.

Elad is a tremendous asset to any organization. He is highly technical and logical person.

I had the pleasure of working with Elad as peers for more than 4 years. Elad is a tough task-master. I’m always amazed with his great combination of technical knowledge and people skills who has both hands on as well as strategic vision. During our "common service" I have learned Elad’s virtues, amongst which are his strategic planning, problem solving and marketing approach. These, combined with a proven delivery capability and business acumen made him a compelling lead in his area. It was indeed a pleasure and a privilege to work with him and I would highly recommend him for any organization

In one sentence: Elad is a technical, always approachable, professional and charismatic leader. Through our time together with RSA, I have found Elad’s positive thinking contagious. His calm and thorough way of avoiding obstacles and solving issues is a talent. Both with internal colleagues, as well as with customers, Elad always demonstrated fast thinking, aim to win-win, passion for details and quality, and ability to break down a complex issue into actionable steps. Hopefully, I will have an opportunity to work with Elad again!

I had the great pleasure of working with Elad at RSA, and I have to say that I enjoyed every minute. Beyond Elad's continuously positive nature—which is great to be around—his professionalism was also a constant. Be it a customer-facing workshop or presentation Elad always brought his "A" game. His knowledge of the product's in-and-outs as well as the overall portfolio allowed Elad to provide insightful input to customer question and challenges. It is this in-depth understanding of customer challenges together with Elad's analytical skills that set him apart as an expert in the field of online banking fraud and cybercrime. I really enjoyed working with Elad and wish him nothing but the best.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Elad for little more than year and a half in RSA. Elad is a dedicated, ambitious, result driven team leader who knows to deliver under pressure. His strengths in staying across issues, multitasking and out-of-the-box problem solving make him a valuable contributor to any situation or team.

I worked with Еlad over two years. Elad has a unique personality. He is a very pleasant and welcoming, with a proven management and leadership capabilities. It is apparent that he was greatly appreciated by his subordinates,colleagues and managers. Elad was always coming with creative ideas, was the initiator and promoter of improvement processes and very involved in social life of our organization. Most of our interface was around staff recruitment processes of Elad. I would like to point out that he has great discernment, he can recognize talent and attract them to the organization. Also, he kept on developing and preserving them throughout their organizational life. In addition to his own recruitment processes Elad was often asked by other managers in the organization to express his opinion about their potential candidates and this because everyone really appreciate him and his judgment. I really enjoyed working 'with Elad, he is amazing person and great leader ! I would very happy to work with him again in the future.

Throughout the years I have come to recognize Elad as someone who possess a great blend of technical and customer facing skills. I found him to be personable, accommodating, composed and particularly creative especially when it came to thinking out of the box. He, for example, had a knack for conveying and throwing out great solutions to whatever seemingly daunting challenges I posed. It is my hope that we get to cross paths again one day.

colleague
As someone that has worked with Elad on projects and relied on Elad's expertise, I fully stand behind not only his skill, knowledge and experience, but also highly commend his attitude, work ethic and ability to discuss very technical items in an easy, concise and "user friendly" manner. Elad is a valuable resource and an excellent mentor. He is very technical, logical and precise, yet also has a very unassuming and easy personality that helps not only in learning situations but also in customer/end user interactions when tension may be high and someone is needed with a cool and unassuming demeanor. I highly recommend Elad and believe he makes a great addition to ANY team...
recommendation
Dan Chapman

Elad is a tremendous asset to our organization. In my role in technical sales, we relied on Elad's technical and communication skills with several of our major customers. He has shown mastery over a very complex technical product and he does outstanding work when interfacing directly with our customers or prospects.
