Fairfax, VA, September 13, 2005 – Continuing to raise the bar on its innovative marketing efforts, Rivermine Software, a leading business applications provider for enterprise telecommunications management (ETM) today announced the appointment of John Shea, a seasoned technology executive, as vice president of marketing.
“John’s ability to grow a company through top-notch marketing has been proven many times over,” said Mark Logan, CEO of Rivermine Software. “Adding John to our management team couldn’t have happened at a better time. His leadership will help to ensure that our products provide the maximum value to customers while further strengthening Rivermine’s position within the exploding enterprise telecom management marketplace.”
Shea’s responsibilities at Rivermine will include managing all product and corporate marketing programs, including building a comprehensive marketing team and leading efforts to shape the future direction of the Rivermine solution set.
“Rivermine is a well-funded, fast growing company with products that provide a clear return on investment for customers,” said Shea. “I’m looking forward to helping take the company to the next level.”
With more than 15 years of technology experience, Shea served as vice president of product marketing, management and corporate strategy for Nuance, a leading provider of enterprise and carrier voice automation solutions. Shea helped grow the company from four live customers to more than 1,000 during his six-year tenure. He was also heavily involved in Nuance’s successful initial public offering.
