Tom Waechter, president and chief executive officer, Viavi said, “Amar is an accomplished finance executive and his broad experience and successful track record will be assets as we pursue our strategy and position Viavi for long-term growth.”

Waechter added, “I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Rex for his 4 years of service at JDSU as CFO and SVP of business services.
