Ibrix Redraws Org Chart

Clustering vendor says new CEO and other execs are part of ongoing execution

Clustering specialist Ibrix has made a slew of management changes in the last few weeks, appointing a new CEO and a raft of other execs. (See Ibrix Intros Storage Offering and Ibrix Joins EMC Select.)

Former Sun exec Bernard Gilbert took over the reins of the company from Shaji John last month, with the outgoing CEO remaining as chairman of the Ibrix board.

"He's still involved with the company, but he has decided to focus more of his energies at the board level as opposed to the operational level," says Gilbert, explaining that the switch was prompted by John himself. "He decided that a different skill set was needed."

In an email to Byte and Switch today, John wrote that Gilbert was appointed to take Ibrix "to its next level of growth" by boosting its channel presence and expanding the number of markets the vendor works in.

During his time at Sun, Gilbert worked in the firm's Network Storage Division, where he oversaw mergers and acquisitions, as well as the vendor's storage management offerings. The exec was also CEO of engineering services firm Zaiq Technologies, which merged with Patni Computer Systems last year.
