Fountain Valley’s D-Link Systems Inc., a maker of networking gear for consumers and small businesses, has continued reshuffling its executive ranks.

D-Link, part of Taiwan’s D-Link Corp., is in the midst of a reorganization.

In the latest round, the company promoted Nick Tidd to president of D-Link North America. He was brought on last year as vice president of marketing for North America and vice president of sales for Pan-America operations.

Tidd is a veteran of Marlborough, Mass.-based 3Com Corp.

Big changes began in May after the departure of Steven Joe, former U.S. president and chief executive who spent more than 20 years at the company.

Keith Karlsen, former executive vice president, also left during the reorganization when D-Link consolidated operations in North America and South America.

As part of the restructuring, D-Link named Carlos Casassus Fontecilla as president of Pan-America.

The company has been hiring executives at a rapid clip, mostly in sales, operations and marketing.

In the same announcement, D-Link said Michael Fox has been promoted to vice president of U.S. solutions channels sales, overseeing the pending launch of D-Link’s latest reseller program. Fox is set to focus on selling to the government.

It also named Patrick Piwowarczyk vice president of U.S. enterprise sales, Michael Walsh as vice president of information technology for North America, Phyllis McCullagh as vice president of sales operations and Mark Ciprietti as general manager of business solutions in D-Link’s Canadian operations.
