Prior to joining Embrane, Bill Burns was CEO of Spirent Communications plc, a global leader in test and measurement solutions within development labs, communications networks and IT organizations.

Burns also held several executive leadership positions at Tellabs, Inc., including Senior Vice President Global Marketing, Strategy and Business Development, Senior Vice President – Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Vice President – Competitive Service Providers.
“In my role as CEO of Spirent, I saw first-hand how technologies were evolving to support the changing demands of next-generation data centers, and companies like Embrane had an opportunity to address a significant need in the market,” said Burns. “As I looked across the industry, I wanted to lead a company that not only was innovating, but also had proven it could solve real customer challenges. Embrane is that company and I’m excited about the opportunity and significant potential we have in front of us.”
Burns responsibilities will include the overall leadership of the company, expanding its existing customer base, and building the company’s growing ecosystem of partners to leverage Embrane’s virtual appliance lifecycle management solutions.

“As an entrepreneur, it’s important to build the strongest team possible to turn your vision into a market-leading company,” added Malagrinò. “With our customer traction, our new round of funding, and our string of industry partnerships, it’s clear the time is now to take the company to the next level and Bill is the perfect candidate to carry our momentum forward. I’m excited to work with him and to continue evolving our products to solve more challenges of enterprises and service providers alike.”
