TEL AVIV, Israel—Veriest Solutions, a leading provider of design and verification engineering services, announced today the appointment of Vukota Pekovic as General Manager of its Serbia-based operations. Pekovic will be responsible for managing Veriest’s world-class services team in Serbia, in light of the growing demand for its services by the local and international electronics development community. Furthermore, Pekovic will be leading the company’s expansion to Embedded Software services.
Pekovic joins Veriest after more than 20 years with RT-RK Computer Based Systems,
a Serbia-based Software house. His experience includes embedded software, product development, QA and electronics design, in different technical and managerial positions. Since 2014, Pekovic has been responsible for one of the company’s main business units,
as well as for its Marketing & Sales activities.
Pekovic holds a Master degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering by the Faculty of Technical Sciences of Novi Sad, Serbia and has published more than 50 articles in international and domestic conferences, as well as several patent applications related to test systems and audio/video processing.
“I’m delighted that Vukota is joining Veriest and is taking this leadership position in the company” said Moshe Zalcberg, Veriest’s CEO. “He brings a proven track-record in successful management and will be instrumental in enhancing Veriest’s leading position in our current operations as well as our strategic expansion to embedded software activities and the European market, attending our customers’ growing demand for our services.”
“Furthermore, Veriest has recently grown to 3 sites in Serbia: Belgrade, Novi Sad and Nis,
I believe it is the appropriate time for having a local general manager, as a sign of our commitment to the Serbian market and our uncompromised trust in the Serbian engineering talent”, he added.
“I’m pleased to lead such a unique team and contribute to the company’s continued growth. I was deeply impressed by the teams’ performance in some of the world’s most complex and advanced electronic projects, cooperating with tier-1 companies. Furthermore, software content plays an increasingly critical role in the full solution Veriest’s customers need. I’m looking forward to working with our existing and future customers to help them address the mounting challenges of electronics design, all within time, quality and budget requirements,” said Pekovic.
The Serbian operations have been so far led by the company’s Vice President of Engineering, Haim Moshe, a veteran of the Israeli VLSI industry, who will now focus his attention to other multinational aspects of the company operations and growth.
