Getting to know the modu team – Exclusive Interviews!

modu’s main value has always been one of People First,  In the upcoming post we’re going to get to know the people, the team that  makes modu. It can be said that the team here tends to push the technological limits but that’s just the tip of the iceberg!  I recently sent modu management 5 questions which I think would most like to be asked.

In the first installment of these interviews we’ll be talking to Jacob Shama Vice President of Value Added Products at modu.

1. Hi Jacob, Thanks for taking time to answer the questions. Can you please give us a little background info about you?

Prior to joining modu I served with the Israel Defense Force, where I attained the rank of Colonel.
My most recent position was the Head of (what is considered to be…) an elite R&D Technological Center, that I managed for over three years. A substantial amount of modu R&D people are from this center.
Most of the positions I held prior to that where R&D management positions in the area of communications.
I hold a BSc and MSc in Electrical Engineering from Tel Aviv University  – prior to my service (“Atoda”), where my thesis was in the field of Electro-optics.
