Bay Networks Inc’s chief executive officer David House likes to boast that since he took the helm at Bay last November (CI No 3,032) Bay is now a new company. RMore than half of my senior staff have arrived since I joined Bay,S he said. It is a strategy that shows little sign of slowing down. Now Bruce Sachs, executive vice president and general manager of BayUs Networks Internet/Telecom Business Group has left the company to join Stratus Computer as its president and chief executive officer. Sachs had joined Bay when it acquired Xylogics Inc. in December 1995. Before that he had been president and chief executive officer at Xylogics, and made no secret of his aim to be a chief executive once more. Mick Scully, vice president, strategic planning and business development, immediately will assume the role of acting general manager until a successor is found. Meanwhile, Bay has announced that Dr. Daniel Pitt is to be vice president and director of the newly formed Bay Architecture Lab. Previously, Pitt worked at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories where, according to Bay, he Rspearheaded the technical and business development for residential broadband technologies.S This sounds to us like HPUs recently disbanded cable modem business: a business which, according to Lloyd Carney executive vice president at BayUs Enterprise Business Group (speaking of course, before the new appointment), was killed because Rthey [HP] coundnUt get the technology to workS. No-one one was available at Bay to confirm whether Pitt had been part of failed HP project. Bay claims to have the largest market share in the cable modem market with its LANcity offerings. Pitt will report directly to House, says Bay.
