December 21, 2022 – Tel Aviv, Israel – BeamUP, Ltd., the leader in enterprise data management for building system design and operations, today announced it has hired Ran Ziv as CTO. Ziv joins BeamUP from ZipRecruiter where he has served as VP Engineering since 2017.

Ran Ziv comments: “Enterprise real estate is ripe for disruption. Until now, facility data was held within disparate systems in a range of formats which has led to knowledge gaps, errors and breaches. BeamUP has found a unique entry point. By digitizing this data, BeamUP is doing for building management and design what ChatGPT is doing for NLP: using facilities’ data for training artificial intelligence algorithms to automate these processes. I’m excited to be building the solution to this real world problem as we help customers make their buildings safe, compliant and efficient.”
