Wind River Reorganizes into Product Divisions to Optimize Growth and Profitability
Appoints Four Executives to New Division Posts
ALAMEDA, Calif., February 6, 2008–Wind River Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:WIND), the global leader in Device Software Optimization (DSO), today announced that it has reorganized into four product divisions. This marks a shift from its previous functional organizational structure. The new structure will allow the company to align its organization with investments in high growth markets, such as mobile handsets, automotive infotainment, network equipment and certain aerospace and defense segments, like MILS.
"The new organization allows us to focus on new technology and market opportunities, be nimble and agile with customers and partners, and drive and measure return on investment," said Ken Klein, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Wind River.
Members of the executive leadership team already in place will manage the new product divisions. The product divisions and management owners are as follows:
- The VxWorks product division will be led by Scot Morrison.
- The Linux product division will be led by Vincent Rerolle.
- The Tools product division will be led by Tomas Evensen.
- The Device Management product division will be led by Amit Ronen.
As a result of the reorganization, certain non-critical, redundant or administrative positions will be eliminated, and staffing of development resources in low-cost geographies will be accelerated.
