Who We Are
Who We Are
Hagai Feiner, President of Platform Five, is a technology evangelist and forward-thinking entrepreneur. His love of technology was fostered through his experience in the Israeli Air Force as an F16 technician and Crew Chief. Hagai parlayed his military training and attention to detail into a successful career in corporate IT and founded a networking company, Access Networks, in 2003.
While overseeing Access Networks’ growth over the course of almost two decades, Hagai took on several office renovation projects to accommodate the company’s growth. Hagai’s mission was to transform dull office spaces into warm and inviting environments. Hagai witnessed firsthand how office spaces affected the team’s productivity and happiness. It was during this period that Hagai realized the success of Access Networks was, in part, due to the office spaces he had created. After the sale of Access Networks to Snap One, Hagai set on a mission to continue creating innovative and welcoming commercial and residential environments by founding Platform Five.
Serving multiple years on CEDIA’s Board of Directors, Executive Committee and Technology Council, Hagai’s business prowess and technical expertise benefits thousands of integrators worldwide. Hagai’s commitment to equity and community has been prevalent througught his career, with his greatest aspiration yet to be realized in early 2022 – the creation of a technical school within Platform Five’s new 20,000 sq. ft. office located at 915 Northampton St. in Easton, PA.
