Quantum adds Cisco veteran to board of directors to help guide growth and technology momentum

Quantum Corp. today announced that Rebecca Jacoby has joined the company’s Board of Directors. She will serve on the Board’s Audit Committee and Leadership and Compensation Committee.

Jacoby joins Quantum’s board as the company expands its product portfolio in the high-speed processing and management of video and video-like data, and the long-term, low-cost archive of unstructured data. The addition of Jacoby to the board underscores Quantum’s drive for operational excellence.

“With the company now restored to responsible and accountable governance, and with continued significant shareholder representation on the Board, Quantum is turning its focus to growth,” said Jamie Lerner, President and CEO of Quantum. “With experience as both CIO and Senior Vice President of Operations at Cisco, a highly respected business leader, Rebecca offers a track record of operational excellence and technology leadership that will be a real asset to Quantum’s Board. Rebecca brings greater diversity to our Board, and a technical depth that will be valued.”

Jacoby served as senior vice president of Operations at Cisco Systems Inc., a worldwide leader in IT networking, which was recently ranked fifth best-managed company worldwide in 2019 by The Wall Street Journal. Jacoby held the position of CIO for 8 years and retired from Cisco in 2018 after more than 22 years of service. As SVP of Operations, she led Cisco's global operations, driving profitable growth. She also oversaw various functions including IT, supply chain, security and trust, global procurement and employee services and workplace resources. Known for her demonstrated understanding of how to drive operational excellence, innovative problem solving and talent development, Ms. Jacoby was inducted into the CIO Hall of Fame by CIO magazine and was recognized by Forbes as a “Superstar CIO” in 2012.

“With the restatement completed and new governance practices now in place, and with a sharper focus on innovation and profitable sales, Quantum has been on a roll with a brisk pace of new product development,” said Rebecca Jacoby. “This is a particularly exciting time to join Quantum’s Board, and I look forward to applying my experience to help Quantum grow and realize its true potential.”
