Geek of the Week: Dor Skuler

A number of months ago we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week, CloudWedge nominates a ‘Geek of the week’ to any cloud leader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is Dor Skuler, vice president and general manager of CloudBand, a division of Alcatel-Lucent. We mentioned Dor earlier this week in reference to the opening of a Bell Labs office in Israel to help develop the CloudBand platform.

Dor is the driving force behind CloudBand’s products and services. He has worked at Alcatel-Lucent (AL) for some years, working up the ranks, and having started out as general manager of mobile security. Prior to AL, Dor worked in various leadership roles, including being the vice president of business development at Safend, and founder and president of Zing Interactive Media.

Dor has been named Global Telecom Business’ “40 under 40” three years running, and  was named one of PhillyTech Magazine’s “30 under 30” tech executives to watch in 2001. He has an MSc in Marketing from Temple University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude. He also has a MBA from International Business from Temple University, where he also graduated Summa Cum Laude.
