Riverbed Appoints Jeff Pancottine as Senior Vice President and General Manager 
of Application Delivery Business Unit 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced the
appointment of Jeff Pancottine as senior vice president and general
manager of the Riverbed(R) Stingray(TM) application delivery business
unit. As the general manager, Pancottine will focus on strategic and
operational activities aimed at driving worldwide growth, including
sales, product development, marketing, and channel development. 
"Jeff is an asset to the Riverbed team and brings with him leadership
experience gained from tenures with Juniper and F5," said Eric
Wolford, president of Riverbed Products Group. "Jeff's experience
will help showcase Stingray as the scalable and agile application
delivery choice that aligns with the industry's trends of virtualized
and software defined data centers. We look forward to the
contributions Jeff will make in driving revenue growth and leading
the business unit."  
Prior to Riverbed, Pancottine held the position as Vice President &
General Manager, Emerging Technology Business Unit at Juniper
Networks. Pancottine was also the President and CEO of Daptiv
(formerly eProject) where he drove the Project and Portfolio
Management market into a SaaS model and became the SaaS market
leader.  
Pancottine spent six years as a senior executive at F5 where he
repositioned the company as a provider of enterprise platform
solutions from load-balancing point products. Pancottine's
repositioning efforts had implications on the entire market as it
prompted a shift in the marketplace categorization of the technology
from load balancing to ADCs. 
Designed for the cloud, Riverbed's comprehensive, layer seven
software ADC can be deployed seamlessly in private, public, and
hybrid clouds. Stingray Traffic Manager software offers simple
scripting, easy user interface-based configuration management, and a
robust application programming interface (API) that enables it to be
managed as an application and provisioned like a service. This makes
it better suited than a hardware load balancer to accelerate
multi-tier applications in a virtual or cloud environment. 
"I joined R
iverbed because of its culture, management, employees, and
the opportunity to work with Stingray -- a game changer for
virtualization, cloud, and software defined data centers," said
Pancottine. "As the ADC market continues to grow and the structure of
the market changes, Riverbed is again well positioned to provide
customers with a solution for their cloud and virtual needs. I look
forward to leading efforts to continue the success of this business
unit."
