CHATSWORTH, Calif. -- LuminentOIC, a leading supplier of metro transceivers and Fiber-to-the-Premise solutions, today announced the appointment of VP of Sales.

Kevin Green has been appointed as vice president of Sales for LuminentOIC, where he will be responsible for North and South America and EMEA regions.

With 24 years of experience in the telecommunications industry, Green was most recently the COO of ExceLight Communications, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Electric Industries. Prior to ExceLight, Green held various sales management positions at AT&T/Lucent Microelectronics. Green holds a Masters in Business Administration from Northwestern's Kellogg Graduate School of Management and a B.S. in engineering from University of Virginia.

"LuminentOIC has the critical combination of advanced technology and cost effective manufacturing that will allow us to win in this competitive market. In addition to its broad based product offering, I joined LuminentOIC because of its leadership position in both FTTX and DWDM SFP technologies," states Green.

This is the latest addition to the senior management team at LuminentOIC. Six months prior, LuminentOIC appointed Barry Kasarda as VP of Operations. Kasarda brings over 20 years of leadership experience in operations, product development, negotiations, and supply chain management. Prior to joining LuminentOIC, Kasarda held the positions of Vice President of Engineering/Product Development for Thyssen Krupp AG, a Fortune 50 global manufacturer of robotics where he oversaw the transfer of complex lines to offshore manufacturing, and Vice President of Materials/Procurement for Micropolis Corporation, a leader in the design and manufacture of high capacity/performance disk drives. Kasarda holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from California State University at Northridge.

"We are pleased with these two recent additions to our senior management team," said Near Margalit, CEO of LuminentOIC. "Barry's track record and experience in offshore production transfer, high volume manufacturing, and supply chain management combined with Kevin's comprehensive sales knowledge within the optical component industry, positions LuminentOIC to strengthen and excel in its leadership in the FTTP and Metro transceiver markets."
