VirtualLogix, Inc. today announced the appointment of Glenda M. Dorchak as chief executive officer. With more than 15 years of executive experience in the technology industry, Ms. Dorchak will lead VirtualLogix in extending the benefits of real-time virtualization to a broad range of computing devices.

“Ms. Dorchak brings deep industry experience and a proven track record of building market focus, optimizing operational efficiencies and driving revenue growth in technology companies across her business career,” said Mike Seashols, chairman, VirtualLogix. “Her passion and insight into how consumers and business users want to leverage the wide spectrum of emerging computing devices and services will be an integral part of VirtualLogix’s strategy in 2009, allowing us to take the leadership role in virtualizing these computing devices.”

Ms. Dorchak comes to VirtualLogix from Intrinsyc Software International (TSX:ICS), a mobility software company, where she served as CEO and chairman. Prior to Intrinsyc, Ms. Dorchak worked with Intel Corporation from 2001 to 2006, holding positions including vice president and COO of the Intel Communications Group; vice president and general manager of Intel’s Consumer Electronics Group; and vice president and general manager of the Broadband Products Group.

She also worked as a director for two start-up ventures. Ambra U.S., an IBM company based in Raleigh, N.C., and Value America, where she became president as well as chairman and CEO.

“As the overall costs of various computing devices continues to put pressure on suppliers, use of software virtualization has become one of the major strategies to address cost and feature issues – both in the bill of material (BOM) and the feature and manageability costs – such as optimizing power management, increasing overall performance and ensuring an adequate level of security,” said Glenda Dorchak. “VirtualLogix is playing a key role in taking software virtualization from the data center to the myriad of computing devices that are entering almost every business and consumer market today. I am looking forward to leading the company through this next – and significant – stage of growth.”
