Quantum Appoints Marengi to Board

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE:QTM), the leading global specialist in backup, recovery and archive, today announced that Joe Marengi has been appointed to Quantum's board of directors, effective May 21, 2007. A former executive at Dell Inc., Marengi most recently served as senior vice president of the company's $20 billion Commercial Business Group, which encompassed all customer-facing business units. He has 20 years of experience in the computer industry, including ten years in various executive management roles at Dell and eight years before that at Novell Inc., where he ultimately served as president and chief operating officer.

"Joe is a recognized leader in the technology industry and has a proven track record of leading highly successful customer-driven organizations,"
said Rick Belluzzo, chairman and CEO of Quantum. "His experience and expertise will be particularly valuable at the board level as we focus on growing Quantum's branded business and expanding our disk and software solutions portfolio to meet the evolving backup, recovery and archive needs of our global customer base."

Marengi joined Dell in 1997, serving as senior vice president of the Corporate Business Group for four years before becoming senior vice president of Dell Americas and later senior vice president of the Commercial Business Group. During his tenure at Dell, he was responsible for units serving medium-size business, large corporate, government, education and healthcare customers in the Americas with global responsibility for Dell's top 180 customers. Marengi also led Dell's services business for corporate and public customers.

At Novell, which Marengi joined in 1989 through the company's acquisition of Excelan Inc., he held several successive leadership positions with increasing levels of responsibility. This included serving as senior vice president of Channels and executive vice president of Worldwide Sales and Field Operations before assuming the role of president and COO.
