Ruckus Wireless has announced a key addition to its management leadership, naming Daniel Rabinovitsj as its Chief Operating Officer.

In his new role, Rabinovitsj will direct Ruckus’s continuing efforts to expand its leadership position within the global service provider and enterprise mobile Internet infrastructure market.

Reporting to Selina Lo, president and chief executive officer of Ruckus Wireless, Rabinovitsj will be responsible for managing all aspects of product operations including strategy, planning, product management, engineering, and manufacturing.

Rabinovitsj brings 25 years of experience in the communications and networking industry to Ruckus, leading business and engineering teams across the globe.

“Dan joins Ruckus at an exciting time when demand for reliable wireless infrastructure and services has never been greater,” Lo says.

“Not only does Dan bring a strong understanding of the emerging trends and technologies in mobile communications, but his hands-on experience in operational management across so many disciplines will be invaluable to the continued growth of Ruckus, further sharpening our focus on delivering long-term value to our customers and shareholders.”

Rabinovitsj joins Ruckus from Qualcomm Atheros, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, where he most recently held the position of senior vice president of the company’s infrastructure business, with a focus on networking and small cells.

“Ruckus has clearly demonstrated industry leadership as an innovator and pioneer of world-class wireless,” Rabinovitsj adds.

"I am thrilled to join a company with a unique culture committed to innovation and operational excellence. I look forward to helping further shape the company and market as part of the Ruckus team.”
