Newmerix Corp. Names Dan Gannon President And CEO


Gannon brings more than 25 years of sales, operations, business development,
and executive management experience to lead Newmerix

SUPERIOR, Colo., (October 23, 2006) – Newmerix, a provider of application lifecycle management software for enterprise applications, today announced it has appointed Dan Gannon as President and CEO. Dan will be responsible for leading Newmerix as it executes a high-growth go-to-market strategy that includes the expansion of its Automate! Suite of enterprise application lifecycle management (EALM) software across multiple ISVs, capitalizing on adoption of the solution for compliance needs, and growing partnerships and sales internationally.

“Dan’s experience with enterprise applications and compliance management is very critical because Newmerix is a unique player in ALM (application lifecycle management),” said Wendy Lea, chairman of the board of Newmerix. “Traditional ALM providers focus on custom developed applications, not enterprise applications such as PeopleSoft and SAP. We have completely different market dynamics from managing very strategic affiliations with the major ISVs because of our products’ metadata integration, to selling at a higher level because of the strategic role enterprise applications play.”

Wendy continues, “Our market segment moves at a much higher velocity than traditional ALM because Netweaver and Fusion are gaining ground as enterprise platforms, and we needed someone who could create a go-to-market strategy that delivers the innovative products solutions we’re building in this segment.”

Gannon brings more than 25 years of experience in sales, operations, business development, and executive management. He comes to Newmerix from Determina, where he served as senior vice president of worldwide sales. Prior to that he was senior vice president of worldwide sales for Vericept Corporation. His earlier positions include executive sales and operations assignments with Intelliden, DMW Worldwide, and The Baan Company.

“There are two tremendous opportunities in front of Newmerix,” said Gannon. “Traditional ALM providers are busy consolidating, while Newmerix and the enterprise ALM market are in growth mode. The major ISVs have evolved from providing ERP, SCM and CRM to delivering enterprise platforms like SAP’s Netweaver and Oracle’s Fusion, and Newmerix was first to see and build for this trend. Having the opportunity to lead Newmerix into that marketplace is a very exciting proposition.”

“The second market opportunity is to expand our growing compliance-driven deployments,” said Dan. “Companies are drowning in work because they’re using manual processes to meet Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory requirements. Newmerix solutions do double duty—not only do they solve core application management problems like demand management, testing, and change control, they meet compliance requirements at the same time.”
