Malmed eventually immigrated to the United States in 1964, and lived in New York for the next 18 years. He went on to hold executive positions with leading tech companies in the Silicon Valley, including SanDisk.
Currently retired, Malmed serves on the Board of Directors for the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation.
