Da New Man

As many of you have probably seen, we announced today that we've hired Kelly Herrell as our new CEO. Kelly comes to us with an excellent pedigree in executive leadership, networking, Linux and open source licensing. Besides his impressive background, Kelly is a great person who is very motivated to lead the team at Vyatta. We're very excited to have Kelly in the company - his energy and enthusiasm is already permeating into the cubicle walls :)

The hiring of Kelly marks an important transition for Vyatta. We're focused on building the company, expanding the executive team under Kelly's leadership and preparing Vyatta to migrate from delivering a beta product to product launch. It's time to move the company to it's next phase and we welcome Kelly as our Vyattan leader [side note: no real negative feedback in the term "Vyattan" yet :)].

Welcome Kelly! I hereby relinquish my unofficial title as "Da Man" to your capable hands!
