Packet Design Names VP

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Packet Design, Inc., the
leader in the field of route analytics technology for
managing large IP networks, has named Steve Ackley vice
president of worldwide sales. He reports to Packet Design
CEO Jack Bradley.

Ackley comes to Packet Design from MonoSphere, a Redwood
City, Calif., storage capacity planning software company,
where he had been vice president of worldwide sales since
2004. Previously he had been vice president of worldwide
sales at Satmetrix Systems, a provider of on-demand
software and consulting services for improving customer
loyalty. Ackley also has served as vice president of
worldwide sales at Vicinity Corp. (acquired by Microsoft)
and regional vice president of sales at Marimba (acquired
by BMC), and has held sales management positions with
Tivoli Systems (IBM) and Sun Microsystems.

"Steve's proven track record in successfully selling
technically complex infrastructure software makes him a
great fit for Packet Design," Bradley said. "He has also
had extensive experience working with startup companies,
generating positive results with small but aggressive
direct sales teams. We anticipate his making a major
contribution as Packet Design moves into a new year and a
new phase of company growth."
