New CEO for NetApp

By
NetApp has appointed Tom Georgens as its president and CEO.

Georgens has been president and COO since February 2008. He joined the company in 2005 as executive vice president and general manager of enterprise storage systems.

"I am excited about leading NetApp forward at a time when the IT industry is at a critical inflection point that will create tremendous opportunities and inevitable challenges," he said.

"We are committed to creating success for our customers and partners in this changing market environment."

Georgens succeeds Dan Warmenhoven, who takes on the newly created position of executive chairman in which he will focus on relationship building with certain strategic partners.

"Looking back, I am very proud that NetApp has achieved a leadership position in the storage market and now look forward to supporting Tom as he takes the company through the next stages of growth in a new era for the information technology industry," said Warmenhoven.
