Brocade Appoints Lloyd Carney as CEO

Brocade has announced that its Board of Directors unanimously appointed networking industry veteran Lloyd Carney to the position of chief executive officer effective immediately. In addition to his role as CEO, Carney will join Brocade’s board of directors. Carney succeeds Michael Klayko, who has served as CEO since 2005.

“After a thorough and robust search process, the Board believes that Carney is the ideal leader to take Brocade to the next level,” said David House, the chairman of the Brocade Board of Directors. “Carney has a relentless passion for driving innovation and operational excellence. These characteristics, combined with his track record of execution including delivering growth and increasing shareholder value, make him an outstanding choice to lead Brocade into its next phase.”

Carney, 50, has built a distinguished career during his nearly 30 years in the high-tech industry including a number of senior leadership positions at various networking and semiconductor companies. Most recently, Carney was CEO and member of the board of directors at Xsigo Systems, a privately held company specializing in data center virtualization, where he positioned the company to take advantage of emerging technology opportunities including cloud computing and software-defined networking.

Previously, Carney was CEO of Micromuse, Inc., which specialized in network management software and later became an integral part of the IBM Tivoli framework. Carney has also held key senior leadership positions at major networking companies including Juniper Networks as its chief operating officer and at Nortel Networks as president of its multi-billion dollar Core IP, Wireless Internet and the Enterprise divisions. Carney also served at Bay Networks as the executive vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Business Group, the company’s largest business unit.
