RICHARDSON, Texas -- Tango Networks™, the leader in seamless enterprise fixed-mobile convergence, today announced that Alastair Westgarth will become the company's chief executive officer and president, succeeding Douglas J. Bartek, who will assume the role of chairman on the company's board of directors.

William J. Turner, managing director at Signature Capital and former chairman of the Tango Networks board of directors, will remain on the board and will stay active on the compensation and audit committees.

Westgarth, who has been chief operating officer since March 2007, is a telecommunications industry veteran who had served on the Tango Networks board of directors and advisors before moving into his current position. He has 16 years of senior leadership experience with wireless and data communications companies. Previously, he held executive positions at Airspan, Inner Wireless, First Broadcasting, Nortel and Bell Mobility, in addition to being CEO and President of Navini Networks. Westgarth has served on the advisory boards of Spatial Wireless (acquired by Alcatel) and Genesis Campus, and the board of directors for Valere Power.

"Tango Networks is so fortunate to have had Doug Bartek as co-founder and our first CEO," stated Westgarth. "His role in getting this company off the ground has been invaluable. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with him closely on the board of directors as we move the company into full deployment mode, providing the most seamless fixed-mobile convergence solution to mobile operators and large enterprises around the world."
