Solarflare Appoints Mary Jane Abalos as Vice President of Finance

(October 25, 2011)

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/25/11 -- Solarflare, the leader in application-intelligent 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) networking hardware and software, today announced it has appointed Mary Jane Abalos as vice president of finance. Identified in a recent Dell'Oro Group report as the fastest-growing 10GbE server adapter company and recognized as one of the top-selling solutions on Wall Street, Solarflare selected Abalos to support Solarflare's next phase of development and revenue growth.

As head of the finance department, Abalos will be responsible for all investment and funding operations. She will also oversee the company's overall planning and hiring efforts. Previously, Abalos served as vice president of planning and finance operations at Cogent, Inc., a global biometric identification solutions provider. She was instrumental in Cogent's going public and led the strategic planning that ultimately resulted in the sale of the company to 3M in October 2010. In addition, Abalos spearheaded the financial strategy and management of JNI Corporation.

"We are thrilled to add Mary Jane to the Solarflare family, especially at such a critical stage of our corporate growth and development," said Russell Stern, CEO of Solarflare. "She has been extremely successful at building high-performance finance organizations and implementing policies and procedures that help prepare emerging companies to scale for growth and go public."

Abalos earned a master's degree in business administration with an emphasis in finance from San Diego State University, and holds a bachelor's degree in management science from the University of California, San Diego.
