Brocade appoints new technology VP to guide EMEA strategy

Brocade brings in technology veteran to guide cloud, SDN and NFV strategies across EMEA

Brocade today announced the appointment of Brian Levy to vice president of technology EMEA.

Working alongside chief technology officer, Curt Beckmann, Levy will drive Brocade’s cloud, SDN and NFV strategies across EMEA. The network firm hopes that the newly created role will enable the team to target key customer segments such as tier 1 service providers.

Prior to joining Brocade, Levy was CTO for Juniper Network’s Service Provider Sector. The new VP has also racked up experience with the likes of HP and British Telecom.

“With 92% of senior IT decision makers admitting that their current infrastructure is not scalable enough to support next generation applications, it is clear that we are, by necessity, on the verge of a major change in how we design, deploy and manage network infrastructure,” said Levy.

“I am very much looking forward to working with the rest of the EMEA team and our customers to help turn the huge potential of new technologies such as SDN and NFV into a reality.”
