<p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sydney - April 19th, 2004</p>
<p>Network Appliance, a leading provider of enterprise network storage solutions, has announced the appointment of Darren Howatt in the role of Systems Engineering Manager, Australia and New Zealand. The appointment is effective immediately.</p>
