New CEO takes the helm at Linux start-up

Linux NetworX, a Salt Lake City start-up that assembles supercomputers out of large numbers of ordinary Linux-based computers, has named Stephen Hill president and CEO. In addition, Ethernet pioneer Bernard Daines has been named chairman. Hill had been acting CEO since Glen Lowry left the post in October and resigned from the board "in order to pursue other personal and professional interests," the company said in a statement. Daines, CEO of World Wide Packets, is a pioneer in Ethernet technology and helped to standardize 100 megabit-per-second and 1 gigabit-per-second versions. He co-founded Grand Junction Networks in 1992, a company sold to Cisco Systems in 1995, and founded Packet Engines in 1994, a company sold to Alcatel in 1998. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
