Former Computer Associates vice president takes over the reins

Networking vendor Enterasys has appointed Michael Fabiaschi as president and chief executive.

Fabiaschi takes over from Mark Aslett, who left to "pursue other interests". Fabiaschi joins from vendor Computer Associates (CA), where he was senior vice president.

Mark Stone, president of operations for The Gores Group, part of the private investor group that purchased Enterasys (CRN, 21 November), said, "Mike’s successful track record of meeting customers’ and partners’ needs while driving revenue growth and profitability are exactly what will take Enterasys to the next level.

"Mark Aslett and the entire management team at Enterasys built an outstanding foundation of intellectual property, products and solutions. Mike has the experience to unlock the value of this foundation and establish Enterasys as a clear industry leader. He has successfully mobilised organisations around customers and created cultures that are sales-driven, marketing-assisted and deliver on their promises," added Stone.

Fabiaschi said: "I see tremendous potential for growth in Enterasys. My job is to strengthen and build our relationships with loyal customers and partners and bring the benefits of Secure Networks to new customers around the globe. Enterasys will live and breathe the mantra ‘there is nothing more important than our customers'."
