Extreme Networks’ Katy Motiey Wins Bay Area Corporate Counsel Lifetime Achievement Award

The annual awards honor the dedicated lawyers who keep the business world running but who rarely get public acknowledgement. Winners are selected by a panel of independent judges. Lifetime Achievement awards recognize attorneys who have practiced for 20 years or more and have shown great leadership inside and outside of their organization; given generously of their time and talents to the legal community; and served the broader community through pro bono work and/or community outreach initiatives.

Katy has more than 25 years of global legal and employment law experience encompassing corporate governance, mergers & acquisitions, divestitures, debt restructuring, human resources management, commercial contract negotiation and licensing, patent and trademark portfolio management, IP litigation and IPO process guidance. Before joining Extreme as Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel, she held General Counsel and Corporate Secretary positions at Spansion, Magellan Navigation/Ashtech, Maple Optical Systems and Alta Vista. Katy holds a Bachelor of Arts and Juris Doctor from Georgetown University.

Katy has been a staunch advocate for gender parity and empowerment of women throughout her career. She was one of the initiators of the Extree Networks International Women's Council, an international Extreme internal committee dedicated to the empowerment of women through various initiatives, including increasing the number of female managers; increasing the number of female employees in STEM positions; enlisting women in a mentorship program; and educating managers on these and related topics. Outside of work, Katy contributes to the community by serving as a role model for women in technology law, speaking at conferences, volunteering her time to mentor, and giving presentations to attorneys and law firms in the local community. An Iranian immigrant herself, she is also a vocal advocate for the rights of immigrants.

"Katy Motiey is an accomplished and highly valued member of our leadership team. She has made significant contributions as a key advisor on business and legal strategy and was instrumental in helping Extreme through three transformative M&A transactions over a 12-month period. Beyond this, she is a strong advocate for gender parity and empowerment, working inside and outside of the company to grow the next generation of women leaders. I speak for all of Extreme in thanking Katy for her inspirational leadership and congratulating her for winning this well-deserved lifetime achievement award." - Ed Meyercord, President and CEO, Extreme Networks
