"Mr. Carney has a relentless passion for driving innovation and operational excellence. These characteristics, combined with his track record of execution including delivering growth and increasing shareholder value, make him an outstanding choice to lead Brocade into its next phase."

Mr. Carney, 50, has built a distinguished career during his nearly 30 years in the high-tech industry including a number of senior leadership positions at various networking and semiconductor companies.

Success here will accelerate profitable growth for our company and drive further value for our shareholders. I am very excited and honored to lead Brocade at this time."

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Mike Klayko for his hard work and dedication as Brocade?s CEO for the past eight years," concluded Mr. House.
