Trish Kennedy built an excellent company and I know I speak on behalf of all
management in saying we are pleased to have the honor and privilege to lead
the company to the next level.”

team by adding six new members, announced continuing relationships with
partners including SAP, and continued to deliver first-rate products and

to grow the firm, particularly overseas, in EMEA, Latin America, as well as in
Asia and Canada, where we have already demonstrated considerable growth,”
explained Mr. Booth.
