Last week when we announced that Ciena had completed the acquisition of Cyan, there was more to the news than just the future of business strategy -- we also added to the Ciena family.
In total, over 200 people joined the Ciena team from Cyan, with more than half based in California. To mark the occasion we held a launch party at Cyan's headquarters in Petaluma, California.
The event started with a town hall hosted by Ciena Chief Strategy Officer James Frodsham and Mike Hatfield, who is formerly Cyan’s president and has been appointed as SVP & GM to lead the Blue Planet division.
After the town hall, employees enjoyed an afternoon of food and fun to celebrate the move. Below are a few pictures from the day's activities, and you can see the entire photo album on Ciena's Facebook page.
