MENLO PARK, Calif., May 30, 2012 -- Silver Lake, the global leader in technology investing, today announced the appointment of Dave Dewalt and Jason Rosenthal, who will join the firm's Value Creation Team as Senior Advisors.

"We are delighted to welcome Dave and Jason to Silver Lake," said Charles Giancarlo, Managing Director and Head of the Value Creation Team, which drives operational improvement and growth in Silver Lake's portfolio companies. "Both of these industry executives bring a great deal of experience from their rich and diverse backgrounds in the technology sector, and we look forward to leveraging their expertise to drive strategic and operational initiatives across our portfolio."

Mr. Dewalt has more than 25 years of experience building innovative, industry-leading technology companies and has a strong record of driving revenue growth at startups, midsize and large companies. He has held executive positions at Oracle, EMC, Documentum, Intel, McAfee, Segue Software and Quest Software. In addition, he currently sits on the Board of Directors of Delta Airlines, Jive Software, Mandiant and Polycom, where he is Chairman.

A recognized expert on cyber-security, Mr. Dewalt has spoken on the subject at meetings and events around the world, including the World Economic Forum in Davos. In May 2011, he was appointed by President Obama to the National Security and Technology Advisory Council (NSTAC). Mr. Dewalt received his undergraduate degree in computer science and electrical engineering from the University of Delaware, where he was a NCAA Division I All American in wrestling.

Mr. Rosenthal joins Silver Lake from Glam Media, a global vertical media company, where he held the role of Executive Vice President overseeing product strategy, product marketing and business development. Mr. Rosenthal joined Glam Media following its acquisition of Ning Inc., an online platform for social networks, where he was CEO.
