Arbinet-thexchange Appoints Subodh Nayar Senior VP, Business Development to Deliver New Cost-Saving Services to Members

NEW YORK – April 9, 2001 – Arbinet-thexchange, the full service trading solution for buyers and sellers of telephony bandwidth, has appointed Subodh Nayar senior vice president, business development.

“The accelerating adoption of our exchange model has reached critical mass. This momentum, combined with the tough current market conditions in the telecom sector, have spurred an increasing number of members to ask us for ways they can integrate our automated wholesale distribution mechanism more closely into their operations,” comments Arbinet-thexchange President & CEO Curt Hockemeier. “We brought Subodh on to spearhead this effort.”

Mr. Nayar was formerly vice president and chief operating officer of BellSouth International Access. In his new position, he will develop products and services that offer ways to extend the value of automated market trading of wholesale capacity into member operations. For example, information products from thexchange can address current market intelligence and order execution hurdles that hinder members’ wholesale trading businesses today.

“As members ramp up their activity on thexchange, they begin to identify additional enhancements and services that would help make their lives easier,” relates Mr. Nayar. “I formerly managed the wholesale business for a tier one carrier, and recognized early on the potential efficiencies created by thexchange’s model. My role here is to expand our service to create as much value as possible for our members, removing obstacles that frustrated me in my last position.”
