At least they won't have any relocation expenses since Tellabs is about 10 minutes from Westell.
I agree that there are a lot of chiefs at Westell, but I don't mind the overhead if they can produce. I look for a great first quarter report both in sales and profits from Westell due to their recent Kentrox acquisition and their recent corporate management moves. It appears that the Kentrox "boys" and other recent hires make up the new team, with the old Westell team being demoted or deployed elsewhere. Look at the Westell website to back this up. It appears everything is in place for Rick Gilbert to move forward as a "pure play" telecom company...new products, growth markets, new personnel. So, make it happen! Justify those salaries and make us proud.
It is starting to look like there must be some significant news or business in the pipeline ahead...Judging from some of the C level appointments and recent stock grants......There is no way they would be this aggressive unless they had visibility going forward.
