Several weeks ago, we celebrated the graduation of our University Development Program (UDP) 18 class and we’ve since welcomed a new group – UDP 19 – to Brocade. Those of you familiar with the program know that Brocade regards UDP as a competitive differentiator in the intense race to recruit and retain talent in Silicon Valley. You may also know that the program was brought to life by our CEO Mike Klayko and his desire to make Brocade an “employer of choice” among new college graduates. As a matter of fact, Mike was recently featured on Fox Business Network talking about UDP. If you missed it, check out the clip here:

The best part is when the host says, “You're an inspiration. I hope a lot of CEOs are watching to say, you know what? We have to follow what Brocade is doing.” I couldn’t agree more.
