Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: VTSS), a leading provider of advanced IC solutions for Carrier and Enterprise networks, announced the addition of Matthew Frey and Kenneth H. Traub to its Board of Directors. These first-term directors were elected along with the slate of the Company’s five existing members at its Annual Meeting of Stockholders held on March 7, 2013.

“Our new directors have a strong mix of leadership, business acumen, and relevant experience that aligns with our strategic objectives,” said Chris Gardner, CEO of Vitesse. “Matthew’s strategic, operational and software development background supports our focus on growing new product revenues and penetrating target markets. Ken has a wealth of complementary experience, including senior management, corporate governance, turnaround and transactional experience, which are necessary as we strengthen our market position, manage our capital structure and ultimately return to sustained profitability. We welcome them both.”

Frey and Traub join the Board with Vitesse’s re-elected directors: Chris Gardner, Steve Hanson, Jay Hugar, Scot Jarvis, and Ed Rogas, Jr. G. William LaRosa and G. Grant Lyon did not stand for re-election. The total board count remains at seven.
