The challenge

In 2015, Ed Meyercord stepped in as the new CEO of Extreme Networks. Facing stagnant growth and a corresponding stock price, he was tasked with setting a new vision to transform the billion-dollar global networking technology company. To bring his vision to life, he retained Acertitude’s Technology team to build a visionary leadership team.

To position the company for transformation and stay poised for growth, the team closed nine searches and is currently leading an Executive Assessment of the full leadership team by mandate from the Board, as well as a search for a Chief Technology Officer.
