Steve Jobs once remarked that incredible things in the business world are never made by a single person, but by a team." This sentiment echoes profoundly in the journeys of both Jeremy Erlick and Terry Mirza two of Compugen’s executive leaders celebrating 25 years at the company who have embraced the power of teamwork to drive Compugen towards new horizons.  

Jeremy's Journey: A Testament to Teamwork + Tenacity 

For Jeremy Erlick, Compugen’s Chief Operating Officer, the essence of Compugen lies in its culture of excellence and innovation, cultivated by a dedicated team. From inside sales to executive leadership, Jeremy's trajectory has been shaped by the collective efforts of colleagues who share a common vision and purpose.  

"To succeed takes intelligence, confidence, and hard work," Jeremy reflects. "But it also takes humility, an interest and commitment to learning, and an open-minded approach." 

Throughout his 25-year tenure, Jeremy has thrived on the challenges and triumphs of collaboration, recognizing that true success is a collective endeavour.  

"The most important thing I have learned is that it is not about me," he emphasizes. "It's about motivating and empowering great people to accomplish great things." 

Terry's Trek: Empowering Teams to Achieve Greatness 

Terry Mirza's ascent at Compugen is a testament to his unwavering belief in the power of teamwork. From his early beginnings as a field representative to his current role dual as a Chief Sales and Marketing Officer and President of Compugen Systems Inc., Terry has championed the spirit of collaboration at every turn.  

"My ability to be empowered is limitless," Terry asserts, highlighting the transformative impact of collective effort. 

Driven by a passion for building high-performing teams and delivering results, Terry draws inspiration from his experiences on the soccer field, where unity and collaboration are the cornerstones of success.  

"No one's bigger than the system, and the whole is more powerful than the pieces," Terry affirms, echoing Steve Jobs' sentiment on the indispensable role of teamwork in achieving extraordinary outcomes. 

Uniting Forces: Empowerment, Collaboration, and Innovation 

Jeremy and Terry exemplify being an ally in the technology journey, helping organizations realize new possibilities. Their stories highlight the importance of a collaborative mindset, where individuals are empowered to leverage their strengths and contribute to a shared vision for the benefit of Compugen’s partners, customers, and internal and external stakeholders. 

At Compugen, technology is not just a conduit; it's a catalyst for transformation.  

"Technology is the conduit, our people are the connection," Jeremy emphasizes, highlighting the pivotal role of human-centric innovation in driving meaningful change. 

Looking Ahead: A Future Fueled by Vision + Collaboration 

As Compugen charts its course for the future, Jeremy and Terry stand at the helm — alongside President and CEO Harry Zarek and the rest of the executive leadership — fueled by a shared vision of expansion, relevance, and impact.  

"We believe we can will our way into anything we put our mind to with the right leadership, the right belief system, the right team," Terry asserts, echoing Compugen's relentless pursuit of excellence. 

Together, Jeremy and Terry embody Compugen's characteristics of being relentlessly curious, driven to make a difference, and collaborative at the core. Their journey inspires us to dream, design, and deliver a future where technology serves as a catalyst for positive change. 

In reflecting on the journeys of Jeremy Erlick and Terry Mirza, it becomes evident that Steve Jobs' profound insight — that remarkable achievements stem from collaborative efforts — resonates deeply. Their stories, intertwined with Compugen's ethos of teamwork and innovation, illustrate the transformative power of unity.  

As we look ahead, inspired by their leadership, let us continue to embrace the spirit of collaboration, for it is through our collective endeavours that Compugen can truly thrive and be the Technology Ally Canadian companies need.
