Piscataway networking firm hires veteran exec as CFO

Piscataway’s Opengear computer networking company has a new chief financial officer.

William Levering has three decades of experience, including 17 years as CFO within several publicly traded and privately held technology companies.

At Opengear, he will be responsible for managing all components of the company’s financial operations, and will provide the strategic financial leadership to support Opengear’s continued worldwide growth.

“William Levering is a highly experienced financial manager with deep technology industry acumen, all of which is especially relevant as we navigate aggressive growth and complex transactions,” said CEO Gary Marks. “His knowledge will help ensure that our financial operations continue to support the delivery of a best-in-class product line to our customers and reseller partners.”

Prior to joining Opengear, Levering served as executive vice president and CFO at FAST LLC, a life insurance and annuity software provider, where he managed all aspects of finance, legal and human resources.

Levering comes to Opengear as the company celebrates its recent recognition in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the fastest growing technology companies in North America.

Opengear is moving into larger office spaces at both its New Jersey headquarters and its Silicon Valley-based research and development facility. The moves will help accommodate the expansion of Opengear’s software development, product management and sales operations teams.
