JDSU Appoints Paul McNab as Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer

MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/11/14 -- JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) today announced that Paul McNab has been named Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, a newly created position. Reporting to Tom Waechter, JDSU President and CEO, McNab is responsible for corporate marketing, strategy and business development.

"Dynamic, exciting change is taking place in our markets, creating new opportunities for JDSU and making it a great time to add a strategist of Paul's caliber to our team," said Waechter. "Paul brings a depth of networking background and extensive experience identifying and developing solutions for the software-defined network architectures of the future."

McNab will continue to serve in this role for the new NSE company following the planned spin-off of the CCOP company announced by JDSU yesterday.

During a 16-year career with Cisco Systems, McNab held executive marketing, strategy and engineering positions. In these roles, he worked closely with some of the leading public and private data center operators and spearheaded corresponding strategic initiatives and product roadmaps for next-generation network architectures, including software-defined networking. He also led the enterprise marketing organization, with an associated $25 billion product portfolio, and built and managed an architecture team that delivered cross-portfolio solutions for the service provider and enterprise markets. McNab recently founded a start-up that developed a disruptive software-based network solution, managed as portable code, for global public and private cloud providers and enterprise customers.

"Increased network connectivity and extension of the network edge beyond the access switch all the way to the application adds enormous complexity for JDSU's customers," said McNab. "JDSU brings unique expertise addressing the need for increased capacity and deeper visibility into network and application performance. It's an exciting time to join JDSU."
