Extreme Networks consolidates sales, support under one umbrella

The ongoing realignment of Extreme Networks' (Nasdaq: EXTR) management team continues in full force as this week the company is folding its separate Worldwide Sales and Customer Support division into one new field operation.

Heading up the new division will be Mike Seaton, Extreme's current VP and General Manager of Worldwide Services. He will report to Bob Corey, EVP & CFO and acting President and CEO of Extreme Networks. A six-year Extreme employee, Seaton has been VP and GM of worldwide customer support since 2007. Before taking on that role, Seaton served as Extreme's VP of Strategic Alliance and Sales operations.   

On the way out is Extreme's Senior VP of Worldwide sales, Helmut Wilke, who will remain with the company until mid-summer to complete the transition.

This latest management shuffle, which Corey says "is an important next step in our continuing efforts to focus on revenue growth and customer success," follows the departure of former CEO Mark Canepa last fall.
