3Com’s New CEO Based in China

Robert Mao, named yesterday by Marlborough, MA-based 3Com as the replacement for outgoing CEO Edgar Masri, will be based in China, where he’ll be able to oversee Internet switch and router maker H3C, 3Com said in a press release. Currently 3Com’s only profitable division, H3C started out as a joint venture between 3Com and Chinese networking vendor Huawei Technologies in 2003 and is now wholly owned by 3Com. The company has also hired Ronald Sege as its new president and chief operating officer; Sege will be based in the United States and will oversee 3Com’s operations outside China.
