Nalbandian as president of Avaya Services. Nalbandian will drive a
customer-centric strategy for growth across all of Avaya's global

he ran managed services at IBM (News - Alert) and AT&T. He then served as CEO of AimNet

services capabilities and view services as a growth lever. Ed brings the
vision, understanding and energy that will drive this business forward
and maximize the value we are providing to our global customer base
through our services offerings."
