JDSU appoints president of Optical Communications Group

JDSU of Milpitas, CA, USA has appointed David Gudmundson as president of Optical Communications, responsible for sales, operations and product development (completing the integration of these functions under a single Optical Communications business leader). “Our focus will be on driving innovation, customer satisfaction, quality and improved profitability,” says Gudmundson.

Gudmundson joined JDSU in December 2003. As senior vice president of Corporate Development and Marketing, he played an integral role in strategic transactions (including the acquisitions of Lightwave Electronics, Acterna, and Agility Communications), diversifying JDSU’s portfolio and expanding its opportunity in the growing and profitable markets for test and measurement equipment, tunable transponders and solid-state lasers.

Prior to joining JDSU, Gudmundson held various hardware and software development and systems engineering positions at Argo Systems Inc (now part of The Boeing Company) and ESL Incorporated (now part of TRW), then senior leadership roles at Cisco, culminating in vice president and general manager of its security server, DSL, and edge routing business units.
