3Com taps Nortel exec to run supply chain

Will attempt to synch up 3Com's US, China supply chains

3Com has named a former Nortel executive to head its supply chain management operations.

3Com tapped Tony Wang as vice president, worldwide supply chain. Wang spent nine years with Nortel; most recently he was managing director of Guangdong Nortel, a joint venture between Nortel and several Chinese networking companies.

Wang managed Nortel's manufacturing operations.

Wang, a 30-year industry veteran, will be based in Hangzhou, China. He will report to 3Com Executive Vice President Shusheng Zheng.

3Com recently named a new CEO to be based in China, where the company is most successful. 3Com replaced its CEO after a failed buyout by Bain Capital and Huawei.

Wang will attempt to integrate the company's two supply chains -- one in China and one based in the United States -- into a single global organization to deliver enterprise products. 3Com says the establishment of a worldwide supply chain will help the company reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.

Wang also spent more than 20 years with Alcatel in China and Taiwan.
