Extreme Move for Nortel Man

NOON Another Nortel Networks Ltd. executive has jumped ship and found a new home: Vish Nandlall was today named as CTO at Ethernet equipment vendor Extreme Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR).

Nandlall was previously CTO at Nortel's Carrier Networks division, where he gained experience in VoIP applications, CDMA, metro DWDM, and bankruptcy protection fallout. (See Nortel Files for Bankruptcy Protection.)

Nandlall isn't the only one to have sought gainful employ elsewhere since Nortel imploded and began to sell off its body parts. (See Huawei Snags Nortel Man, Nortel's LTE Brain Drain, Ciena Nets PBT Man, Ericsson Bids for Nortel Wireless Assets, Avaya Offers $475M for Nortel's Enterprise, NSN May Buy Other Nortel Assets, Who's Waving Their Wad at Nortel’s MEN?, and Who's Dialing In for Nortel's VoIP Assets? .)

But if Nandlall is going to be CTO, what's happened to Stephen "Captain" Haddock, an Extreme co-founder who has been wearing the CTO badge?

Is he still on board, or is he sleeping with the fishes?

We're waiting to hear from Extreme to find out.
