BOULDER, Colo.—February 15, 2011—Spectra Logic, celebrating more than 30 years of data storage innovation, today announced that Molly Rector, the company’s vice president of product management and worldwide marketing, has been named to the Boulder County Business Report's Forty Under 40 class of 2011. The "Forty under 40" list honors select professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to shape the future through their contributions to the Boulder Valley Community.
Rector is a well-recognized data storage industry leader who has made significant contributions to Spectra Logic and the storage industry since joining the company in 2004. Her ability to anticipate market requirements and execute strong marketing campaigns helped propel the company to record-setting revenues and profitability in the first half of fiscal year 2011, which ended December 31, 2010. She initiated and chairs the storage industry's Active Archive Alliance, and under her leadership Spectra Logic recently received one of the industry's most prestigious honors, the Storage magazine / Searchstorage.com Quality Award.
"We are pleased Molly is being recognized as a Forty Under 40 leader," said Nathan Thompson, Spectra Logic’s chief executive officer. "Molly’s outstanding technical background, demonstrated leadership and success in driving growth and customer satisfaction make her a great asset to our organization and to the Boulder Valley Community.”
Rector and the other honorees will be recognized during the Forty Under 40 event this evening at the Boulder Theater, and will be profiled in the February 18 issue of the Boulder County Business Report.
"We were very impressed by the quality of the nominations and the caliber of the individuals nominated," said Christopher Wood, Business Report publisher. "The Boulder Valley is very fortunate to have these dynamic young professionals poised to assume leadership roles – and many who have already done so."
