Congratulations to NetApp's new president and chief operating officer, Tom Georgens, who moves up from executive vice president of product operations. Georgens is one of the most knowledgable and articulate news sources in the business -- not only about NetApp, but the sector in general. He'll report to CEO Dan Warmenhoven, who's celebrating his 13th year at the NetApp helm.
The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based data storage systems company also named President Tom Mendoza to the newly created position of vice chairman. The vice chairman role is a company position, not a board position.
Both men are already at their new desks.
