ProStor Systems Appoints Jay Kidd To Board Of Directors

BOULDER, Colo., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ProStor Systems, the leader in enterprise-class removable disk storage systems for business backup, archiving, and retention management, announced today the appointment of Jay Kidd to its Board of Directors. Mr. Kidd's accomplishments span over 30 years in key leadership roles at many high profile multi-national storage, networking, and computing companies with a strong emphasis in product strategy and development, marketing, and business operations. Mr. Kidd is currently serving as senior vice president, Storage Solutions Group and Product Strategy and Development at NetApp (Nasdaq: NTAP).

Mr. Kidd's board appointment is part of a planned progression as ProStor Systems continues to grow and expand its capabilities and markets in both its RDX® removable disk and ProStor InfiniVault® systems businesses. As the second independent director from within the storage industry, Mr. Kidd will lend keen insight and perspective to the Company's near and longer-term strategies and programs complementing the existing Board of Directors from world-class venture capital firms NEA, Sutter Hill Ventures, Boulder Ventures, and Sequel Venture Partners.

"I'm delighted to have Jay join our board as his proven track record in executive management and industry expertise will be a strong complement to our existing board," said Frank Harbist, president and CEO of ProStor Systems. "His stellar career in the storage and networking industries coupled with his extensive cross-functional executive experience in developing and deploying solutions for customer driven organizations will prove invaluable as we move to our next stage of growth."

"ProStor has been able to leverage the 2.5" disk roadmap by defining and developing a new product category and building a sustainable and ever-growing ecosystem around it – leapfrogging competitive tape and optical backup and archive offerings," added Kidd. "I'm excited about helping ProStor expand its market opportunities domestically and globally for the RDX removable disk and ProStor InfiniVault product lines in meeting the solution needs for long term information retention."
