Marina Levinson, NetApp CIO, Honored at the YWCA of Silicon Valley's Annual Tribute to Women Awards Program
Sunnyvale, Calif.-May 20,
2010-Marina Levinson, NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) CIO and senior
vice president, was named an honoree by the YWCA of Silicon Valley
in their Tribute to Women (TWIN) Awards program. The program, now
in its 26th year, pays tribute to successful women executives for
their outstanding achievements and recognizes the companies that
employ them. The participants represent a cross-section of Silicon
Valley companies in the technology, defense, communications,
publishing, construction, and healthcare industries, among others.
This is the second consecutive year that a NetApp executive has
been honored by TWIN.
A panel of former TWIN honorees and prominent
industry leaders selected Levinson, in part, for helping to scale
NetApp's applications and infrastructure to support the company's
growth, including the development of a next-generation data center
in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. This groundbreaking data
center showcases energy-efficient technology and techniques that
will save NetApp an estimated $7 million a year and avoided
producing an estimated 93,000 tons of carbon dioxide compared with
other modern data centers. Levinson and the other Silicon Valley
TWIN honorees will receive their awards at the TWIN Awards gala
dinner on May 20, 2010, at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose,
