Len Hayes, who has some 29 years in domestic and international manufacturing and operations, has been named vice president of operations at Overture Networks.

Jeff Reedy, president and chief executive officer of Overture, said Hayes’ hire was part of the company’s expansion plan.

Given that Overture is building equipment for the delivery of voice and data services for telecommunications company, Reedy said Overture has to “meet and exceed the demanding carrier class standards that our customers expect.”
