<p>Sydney, Australia (May 11, 2005) – NETGEAR (Nasdaq: NTGR), a leading provider of easy-to-use, high-performance networking products, has restructured its senior management team, creating two new Director positions to better support its growing Australian operations.</p>
<p>Sue Ponder, who has worked for NETGEAR for the past seven years, has been promoted to the role of Director of Retail and Distribution. In the new position she is responsible for managing NETGEAR’s entire Australian reseller business, and for devising effective strategies and promotional initiatives to introduce new products to the local market.</p>
<p>“We continue to move from strength to strength in Australia, maintaining our position as an industry leader,” said Ponder. “Building on this success, I plan to develop strategies that will further grow the NETGEAR business locally, taking us into new markets and increasing our presence in the education and enterprise space.”</p>
<p>Ryan Parker has been appointed as NETGEAR’s Director of Partnerships and Services, expanding the scope of his previous position as National ISP Account Manager.

<p>Ian McLean will still head NETGEAR’s Australian business in his role as Asia-Pacific Vice President, but the restructuring will leave the running of daily operations to the new Directors, enabling him to better focus on the strategic direction of the company.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
