Enterasys has a long and distinguished history in the networking industry going back 30 years to the early days of personal computers. With last Friday’s announcement of Enterasys officially becoming Extreme Networks, we are entering a new and exciting phase of our journey. It is a journey that began in a garage in Massachusetts and is now culminating today on Wall Street.
I was fortunate enough to have witnessed first hand the metamorphosis of our company over the last two decades. When I began my career as a sales development representative (or
telemarketer as we were called back then), I was amazed at the energy, drive and passion our employees and our customers shared that drove our company to do more, be more, and to excel. Back then, we called this the “Can Do” spirit and we all embraced it. Today, many of our customers are still with us as we embark on our new and exciting journey to “Go Be Great” as Extreme Networks. It is an amazing feeling to continue to share this journey with a company of such hard-working and passionate individuals that strive for one thing; to make our company and our products the best they can be and to show that “nothing is more important than our customers.”
It is with much pride that I invite you to join us as our CEO Chuck Berger, along other members of our executive team, ring the NASDAQ closing bell today beginning at 3:45pm EST. Please join us as we mark the beginning of this new adventure and strive to once again dominate the networking industry.
