Great employees are key to a company’s success. People who bring innovative ideas to the table, who have the drive to succeed, and who have a sense of fun and comradery ultimately contribute to a company’s achievement. At Kaminario, we treat our employees like they are part of our family. We cheer on each other’s successes. We’re there to lend a hand in times of need. And we stand together behind a product we believe in. In this blog series, we’ll introduce you to members of the #KamFam.
Roee Weiser, Director of Operations
Roee Weiser sums his role up succinctly when he says, “My role is to make sure that Kaminario is performing at its highest potential.” As Director of Operations for the past three years, Roee manages multiple areas of the organization that focus on assuring productivity, on-time deliveries, and efficiency. His diverse team is made up of production engineering, logistics, procurement, and supply chain management.
A typical day for Roee generally starts with a review of last night’s production results as well as a review of the needs of customers – both internal and external. Roee also works closely with global and local suppliers to ensure that customers are receiving their K2 arrays on time, at the right cost, and with the quality they expect. This includes working hand to hand with TechData, a Kaminario strategic partner.
Working at Kaminario
With so many tasks to manage, every day at Kaminario is a whirlwind… and that’s quite alright for Roee. Before joining Kaminario, he came from both the military and medical equipment industries where he was used to industry and governmental regulations stalling processes. “At Kaminario, we can improve in no time. The time is very short from innovation to implementation, so we can do whatever we believe is needed.”
Roee’s team is small but mighty. Only six members strong as of this writing – but with an eye to keep growing — members of the team are leaders in Production Engineering, Logistics, Procurement, and Supply Chain Management. “My team – the A-Team – is young, hungry and highly motivated,” Roee says. “They come to work each day to get things done. I couldn’t do it without them.”
On a Personal Note…
During his free time, Roee serves as a major in the IDF reserve. He is also the Treasurer of The Workers City and Hapoel “Robi” Haifa, an association established to help at-risk youths through soccer. The association has a semi-professional soccer team that plays in the third league in Israel. In this role, my job is to control the association cash flow and to make sure we have enough funds to keep operating and grow. This year we will have 15 employees and over 250 youth we support.
