 In announcing the changes, Dirk I. Gates, president and chief executive officer, commented on Flynn's contribution to Xircom's success, "Errol joined Xircom in its very early days and helped us build excellent North American distribution channels and our reputation as the `Number 1' portable PC connectivity company. We are grateful for Errol's contributions."
 Gates added, "We are continuing to grow Xircom with a global view of the market and have taken this opportunity to establish a new position of vice president, Worldwide Sales. In the over two years that Russ Dopson has served as Xircom's vice president, International Operations, he has significantly increased Xircom's global presence. We believe Russ' 20 years experience in developing and leading sales teams in the networking and computer industry makes him highly qualified to lead Xircom's newly integrated global sales organization."

Internationally, we have a successful and mature organization in Xircom Europe, which is responsible for serving our distributors in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. We are also expanding our global presence with the establishment of Xircom Asia, which will be headquartered in Hong Kong and will support and continue to grow our business in the Far East."
