WideBand Corporation (ZWBC) announced today the appointment of Jamie Stack as Executive Vice President and head of their worldwide sales effort. “Today’s news is one of the most significant events in our corporate history,” said WideBand President Dr. Roger Billings. “Jamie Stack is, without a doubt, one of the most competent and trusted people in the computer networking industry. People love this guy.”
Mr. Stack joins WideBand as the next step in a distinguished career in the computer industry. Most recently Stack was with SMC Networks of Irvine, California, where he served in a number of executive capacities including President of the Americas. Under Stack’s leadership, SMC expanded sales nearly 700 percent in just three years, establishing the company as an industry leader.
When asked why he decided to join the WideBand team, Stack said, “There is a major problem in this industry right now. Gigabit Ethernet deployment, while badly needed in many environments, is almost non-existent due to the reluctance of customers to rewire their premises with Cat 5E cable. It’s one thing to upgrade your switch and desktop infrastructure with quality Gigabit equipment; it’s something else altogether to be forced to rewire your entire organization because your legacy Cat 5 cable just will not support the Gigabit standard. WideBand has solved this problem by bringing to market standards-based Gigabit Ethernet products that go the distance on the existing installed base of Cat 5 cable. This was just too big of an opportunity to pass up on.”
Before joining SMC, Stack served as the Worldwide Sales Manager for the Networking Business Unit at Kingston Technology. He started his career in computer networking in 1989 at COMPEX where he held the position of National Sales Manager.
WideBand Corporation also announced that Rod Finney and Mike Oseland have joined their Corporate Sales team. Both previously held senior sales positions at SMC.
WideBand Corporation develops, manufactures, and markets standards-based Gigabit Networking products. WideBand Stock is traded on the OTC.BB Market (ZWBC), and on the Frankfurt Exchange (Stock symbol WBD; German Security No. WKN-764536). The Corporate website is https://www.wband.com.
