Infinera appoints former Oclaro CEO Greg Dougherty to board

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide (InP)-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), has appointed Greg Dougherty to its board of directors.

The firm says that Dougherty has a proven track record of executive leadership and extensive experience in the optical communications industry, along with strong operational expertise in the development of innovative optical component products and technologies.

“Greg’s deep industry knowledge and expertise will be invaluable as we move forward with a broader set of end-to-end solutions, greater scale and expanded relationships with the world’s leading network operators,” comments chairman Kambiz Hooshmand. “His insights and guidance will be tremendous assets.”

Dougherty was a director of intelligent photonic solutions provider Avanex Corp from April 2005 to April 2009, when it merged with Bookham to become Oclaro. At Oclaro, he was a director from April 2009 and simultaneously CEO from June 2013 until the firm’s acquisition by Lumentum last December.

Dougherty also served as a director of Picarro Inc (a manufacturer of ultra-sensitive gas spectroscopy equipment using laser-based technology) from October 2002 to August 2013, and as its interim CEO from January 2002 to April 2004. Previously, Dougherty was chief operating officer at SDL from 1997 to 2001, when the firm was acquired by JDS Uniphase Corp, where he continued in the role until 2002. From 1989 to 1997, Dougherty was director of product management & marketing at Lucent Technologies Microelectronics in the Optoelectronics Strategic business unit.

“I look forward to working closely with Tom and the entire Infinera leadership team at a time when the company’s distinguished heritage of innovation puts it in a unique position to redefine transport networks for a new generation of communications services,” says Dougherty.

It was also announced that John P. Daane, a member of Infinera’s since January 2016, will not stand for re-election at the upcoming 2019 annual meeting of stockholders.
