Cooney leaves Tandberg to become CEO of Internap  
By Mike Robuck

Eric Cooney has left his position as president and CEO of Tandberg to join Internap.

Internap’s board of directors appointed Cooney as its new president and CEO, as well as to a position on its board, effective March 16.

“I am pleased that Eric Cooney has agreed to join Internap,” Gene Eidenberg, chairman of the Internap board, said. “He has broad experience in the technology industry and a proven track record of increasing shareholder value. His leadership and management skills, combined with his hands-on operational experience in a publicly traded company, are the ideal combination to improve shareholder value and restore investor confidence at Internap.”

Cooney succeeds James P. DeBlasio, who has resigned but will remain president and CEO until Cooney assumes his new responsibilities. DeBlasio was president and CEO of Internap since 2005. Cooney, 42, joined the digital video business of NDS in April 1997, which was acquired by Tandberg Television in October 1999. He held a number of positions of increasing responsibility, including vice president and general manager Americas and chief operating officer, before assuming his role as president and CEO of Tandberg in June 2003.
