We are very grateful to him for his dedicated service to EarthLink and we will miss his talent and enthusiasm,” CEO Joseph Eazor said, "Gerard Brossard is a fantastic addition to our management team and Louis and Brad are ideally experienced for their new positions. I look forward to working with them in their new roles as we continue with our strategy to be a leading managed network, security, and cloud service provider. And while I will have much more information to share on our earnings call in early May, I am pleased with how our first quarter results are demonstrating our continuing progress in executing this strategy."
