Data centre processor and board maker Pliops has appointed Ido Bukspan as CEO. He has most recently served as SVP of Chip Design at Nvidia.

Pliops co-founder and former CEO Uri Beitler will become chief strategy & business development officer, where he will focus on developing strategic partnerships and creating new business opportunities to promote the company’s growth.

The company struggled to sell its chip to board makers and developed its own memory sub-systems to sell to data centre operators.

“I am very proud of Pliops’ achievements to date and am excited to work closely with Ido, who has an impressive track record,” said Beitler. “I have no doubt that Ido will successfully lead Pliops forward and help implement our product roadmap and integrations with our customers.”

From Mellanox to Nvidia to Pliops

“In his position as CEO, Uri built and led Pliops from the day it was established to many outstanding achievements. Now, in bringing on Ido, we are adding someone with substantial experience in our target markets, and I have no doubt that the impressive career Ido built at Nvidia and his leadership capabilities will help Pliops accelerate its current positive momentum to increase growth and expansion into additional markets,” said Aryeh Mergi, Pliops chairman.

At Mellanox, Bukspan held a wide range of positions before being appointed as the leader of the Chip Design Group, which went on to become Nvidia’s networking products. During his time at Nvidia, Bukspan led Chip Design Networking.. 

Ido Bukspan, Pliops CEO, said: “I’m excited to join Pliops and continue to integrate the advanced technology it developed – together with its founders, Uri, Moshe and Aryeh, and the company’s leaders and employees. Pliops is experiencing an excellent momentum for continued growth and expansion.”

The company employs approximately 110 employees in Israel, the U.S and China – and has to date secured approximately $215 million from prominent investors, including Koch Disruptive Technologies, State of Mind Ventures Momentum, Intel Capital, Viola Ventures, SoftBank, NVIDIA, AMD, WD, and SK hynix.
