The innovations of Dov Moran, Amir Ban, and Simon Litsyn, while working at M-Systems, drove the creation of the USB flash drive, the world’s most popular portable memory device. Mr. Moran founded M-Systems in 1989 to create storage systems utilizing the advantages of rewritable flash memory technology. The original USB flash drive, called DiskOnKey, was introduced by M-Systems in 2000 and quickly replaced the floppy disk for storing and transferring data. M-Systems was acquired by SanDisk in 2006.
Mr. Moran is the founder and Chairman of Comigo, Yarkona, Israel, among other companies.
