Before joining Infinera, Ms. Mortazavi was VP, Global Materials at JDS Uniphase, where she played a key role in a program of restructuring manufacturing and shifting production to low-cost regions. Before that, she was at Solectron, where she helped the company build the materials and supply chain processes that made it a leading supplier of worldwide contract manufacturing services.

"Infinera has been tremendously successful as a new player in optical networking systems, and I'm delighted to join a company with such a strong team and unique technology advantages," commented Ms. Mortazavi."As Infinera grows, it will need to improve its cost base structurally and build additional scalability into its supply chain, in part by building partnerships with the best suppliers in the industry."
