POET Appoints Supply chain expert as board advisor


Theresa Lan Ende joins as advisor prior to nomination to board

Photonics chip developer POET Technologies has appointed Theresa Lan Ende, currently chief procurement director of Arista Networks, as an advisor to the company’s board of directors. The company will nominate Theresa Lan Ende as a director at its AGM in October.

“We are thrilled that Theresa Lan Ende has agreed to become an advisor to our board prior to her nomination at the AGM,” said Suresh Venkatesan, chairman and CEO of POET. “As part of that upcoming meeting, we will be proposing to shareholders an increase in the size of the board and appointment of Theresa. She brings to our board a wealth of knowledge and experience in global supply chain management, operations and planning gained from several leading companies in our industry, including Arista Networks, JDS Uniphase, Force10 Networks, Cisco Systems and ROLM Telecommunications. She has a unique and valuable perspective on present-day supply chain matters and is expected to be an insightful voice on the board as the company grows in size and stature.”

Before her appointment as chief procurement director of Arista Networks in 2019, Theresa Lan Ende served for ten years as its senior director of Global Supply Chain Management. Prior to Arista, she held senior positions at JDSU Optical Division and Force10 Networks. At Cisco Systems and ROLM Telecommunications, Ende held various program management and planning management positions over a 20-year period. In 2019, she was honoured as one of the 'Top 100 Women of Influence' by Silicon Valley Business Journal.
