Feldman Out at Force10

Andrew Feldman, the man who was Force10 Networks Inc. 's VP of marketing since late 2003, left his post at the beginning of the year.

But some Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) scrutiny of Feldman's prior job has made the change appear more dramatic, as Force10 continues to work toward becoming a publicly held firm.

Prior to joining Force10, Feldman was VP of corporate marketing and corporate development for Riverstone Networks Inc. (OTC: RSTN.PK) . Before that, he was senior director for worldwide product marketing at Cabletron Systems. Stephen Garrison, another former Cabletron executive, assumes Feldman's duties at Force10.

"I left for personal reasons; I was tired and needed a break," said Feldman, when reached at his home last week.

Force10 didn't offer comment on the transition except to reaffirm that Feldman's departure was voluntary.
