Anagog has opened its U.S. Headquarters in New York City and appointed Gil Bolotin as its VP of Business Development there. In addition, the company announced its partnership with Singapore-based AccelerAsia to support Anagog’s significant sales opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.
“The need for intelligent privacy-based edge-AI solutions is not limited by geographies, and it’s fueling our company’s growth. That’s why we’re committed to accelerating our presence in North America and Asia,” said Ofer Tziperman, CEO of Anagog. “Organizations around the world understand the need for consumer privacy, but they also want to provide accurate, personalized contextually aware and geo-targeted services to their customers. With our JedAI solution, we’re making it possible to address both of these needs in one on-device solution.”
In his new role, Mr. Bolotin will be responsible for U.S. business and operations. Prior to joining Anagog, Mr. Bolotin worked as a consultant for McKinsey & Company, where he advised clients on activities from strategy, growth and advanced analytics to artificial intelligence, digital transformation and operations. Gil previously worked as a consultant at Deloitte, advising financial institutions in Israel and Europe and consulting on risk management projects and operations.
