<p>Sydney, Australia – 10 July, 2007 – Quantum Corporation, a global leader in storage, today announced the appointment of Jeff LeBold as managing director for the Asia Pacific region.</p>
<p>In this position, LeBold is responsible for promoting Quantum’s value proposition to the storage community, driving the company’s continued growth, establishing and developing sales channels, professional service operations and strategic alliances within the Asia Pacific market.</p>
<p>LeBold, who replaces Emil Kobylarz as Quantum Asia Pacific managing director, previously ran Asia Pacific for ADIC and is based in Quantum’s Shanghai office.</p>
<p>LeBold said "I am very pleased to take over the business that Emil has developed for Quantum Asia-Pacific during the past four years. Emil has been a strong leader for our team, and I truly expect to continue the great work he has done. 2007 is a period of transition for Quantum, as we're now nine months into the acquisition of ADIC, and we have our first new combined product on the market - the DXi Series - disk-based backup and recovery appliances based on our patented de-duplication technologies developed in Australia.</p>
<p>"In addition to enterprise tape libraries and our StorNext software, we see data de-duplication as a major thrust for Quantum worldwide for 2007. To this end I'm pleased to announce that we will be growing the Quantum teams across Asia-Pacific to better support our valuable customers.”</p>
