Open Networking User Group Adds to Board

The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) has added Morgan Stanley, Intuit, and Yahoo to its Board.

Pablo Espinosa, formerly Director of Network Infrastructure at Gap, moves to Intuit as Director of Network Engineering to oversee strategy, architecture, engineering, and operations. Despite Pablo’s new affiliation, Gap will retain a seat on the board, with a new representative to be appointed by Pablo and approved by the ONUG Board.

Meanwhile, Lane Patterson has recently transitioned out of his role as Vice President of Global Network at Symantec into the same role at Yahoo, where he is responsible for overall architecture and DevOps and reports to Yahoo Co-Founder and Chief Yahoo, David Filo.

“We are excited to welcome Intuit and Yahoo to the ONUG Board,” said Nick Lippis, Chairman and Co-Founder of ONUG. “We look forward to expanding our reach and gaining new insight from a wider variety of industry sectors.”

Moreover, the ONUG Board has appointed John Storm, Executive Director within Morgan Stanley’s Institutional Securities division, as its newest member. John Storm joins other IT leaders in overseeing the strategy and direction of ONUG to assist IT executives as they transition toward open cloud infrastructure. In addition to being represented on the ONUG Board, Morgan Stanley will co-host ONUG Fall 2015 with NYU, and a representative from the company will deliver a keynote address at the fall event.

ONUG Fall 2015, hosted by Morgan Stanley and NYU, will be held at the NYU Kimmel Center. The event will begin with ONUG Academy on November 3rd, followed by the two-day ONUG Conference, November 4th and 5th. Early bird registration will run through September 4th.
