Turin Names New CEO and CFO

Turin Networks, a start-up based in Petaluma, California, named Henry Wasik as its new president and CEO, replacing company founder John Webley, who has been named chairman of the board of directors and also appointed to the newly created position of chief marketing officer (CMO). Wasik joins Turin Networks from Alcatel, where he served as senior vice president of the Voice Networks/Applications Software and Solutions businesses.

Separately, Turin has also named Dan Steimle to the position of chief financial officer (CFO). Steimle was formerly CFO of Advanced Fibre Communications (AFC), which he guided to a successful IPO in 1996.

  • In June, Turin Networks added to its product portfolio with the introduction of its "TraverseEdge 100" (TE-100), a compact next-generation SONET/SDH and Ethernet edge system for metro access networks. The platform can be used to aggregate a combination of DS1 or E1, DS3 or E3, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet service interfaces onto dual high-speed SONET OC-3/12/48 or SDH STM-1/4/16 ports.
