Optical transceiver vendor DustPhotonics has named Ronnen Lovinger its new president, the company’s first. Lovinger will report to Ben Rubovitch, CEO and co-founder.

Lovinger joins DustPhotonics from Innoviz Technologies, where he established the operations, engineering, and quality infrastructures to meet high volume manufacturing needs in the automotive industry as COO. Prior to his tenure at Innoviz, Lovinger was senior vice president of operations at Mellanox. Overall, he has more than 20 years of experience in senior management roles.

Lovinger will oversee the company's research, development, operations, and quality activities. DustPhotonics says it expects Lovinger to drive operational and development excellence across the company to ensure continued growth.

"Lovinger is a seasoned leader and is uniquely qualified to drive strategic prioritization and accountability within Dustphotonics, leading the company on operational and development excellence," said Rubovitch. "I have tremendous confidence in Mr. Lovinger's knowledge of the photonics marketplace, go-to-market strategy, and his experience in industry leading operational processes will help drive and extend DustPhotonics market reach, and maximize our growth in the optical interconnect market."

"I'm excited to join the dynamic and innovative team at DustPhotonics to help drive its continued evolution," said Lovinger. "I look forward to leveraging my experience to help lead the company to its next phase of technological innovations and operations growth, in order to meet customers' demands, and remain cutting-edge in an ever-evolving industry."

Headquartered in Modi'in, Israel, and with offices in Cupertino, CA, DustPhotonics makes optical transceivers and active optical cables based on a proprietary packaging technology (see “Production ramps for DustPhotonics’ 100-Gbps QSFP28-SR4 optical transceivers”). The company recently unveiled a line of single-mode transceivers after an initial focus on multimode devices (see “DustPhotonics offers 400GBASE-DR4 QSFP-DD optical transceiver”). The hiring of Lovinger is the latest expansion of its executive roster as it gears up for market expansion (see "Optical transceiver vendor DustPhotonics beefs up management team").
