Riverbed Appoints Jeff Pancottine as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Application Delivery Business Unit

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 04, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced the appointment of Jeff Pancottine as senior vice president and general manager of the Riverbed(R) Stingray(TM) application delivery business unit. As the general manager, Pancottine will focus on strategic and operational activities aimed at driving worldwide growth, including sales, product development, marketing, and channel development.


"Jeff is an asset to the Riverbed team and brings with him leadership experience gained from tenures with Juniper and F5," said Eric Wolford, president of Riverbed Products Group. "Jeff's experience will help showcase Stingray as the scalable and agile application delivery choice that aligns with the industry's trends of virtualized and software defined data centers. We look forward to the contributions Jeff will make in driving revenue growth and leading the business unit." Prior to Riverbed, Pancottine held the position as Vice President & General Manager, Emerging Technology Business Unit at Juniper Networks. Pancottine was also the President and CEO of Daptiv (formerly eProject) where he drove the Project and Portfolio Management market into a SaaS model and became the SaaS market leader.

Pancottine spent six years as a senior executive at F5 where he repositioned the company as a provider of enterprise platform solutions from load-balancing point products. Pancottine's repositioning efforts had implications on the entire market as it prompted a shift in the marketplace categorization of the technology from load balancing to ADCs.

Designed for the cloud, Riverbed's comprehensive, layer seven software ADC can be deployed seamlessly in private, public, and hybrid clouds. Stingray Traffic Manager software offers simple scripting, easy user interface-based configuration management, and a robust application programming interface (API) that enables it to be managed as an application and provisioned like a service. This makes it better suited than a hardware load balancer to accelerate multi-tier applications in a virtual or cloud environment.

"I joined Riverbed because of its culture, management, employees, and the opportunity to work with Stingray -- a game changer for virtualization, cloud, and software defined data centers," said Pancottine. "As the ADC market continues to grow and the structure of the market changes, Riverbed is again well positioned to provide customers with a solution for their cloud and virtual needs. I look forward to leading efforts to continue the success of this business unit." For more information about the Stingray product family, visit http://www.riverbed.com/us/products/stingray/.
