Enterprise content management (ECM) software vendor makes senior appointments in the northern hemisphere fueling further global expansion

Wokingham, Berkshire – 4th September, 2007 – Leading ECM company, TOWER Software, today announces a series of appointments in its senior management team, designed to further strengthen its operations in the northern hemisphere, and streamline the growth of global corporate customers wishing to roll-out the Company’s TRIM Context solution worldwide. Tony Sumpster, formerly Managing Director for TOWER Software across EMEA, becomes Executive Vice President and will share his time between Canada, EMEA and the US. Paul Brenchley, formerly Sales Director in the EMEA region, becomes Vice President, EMEA.

Sumpster will continue to report to Martin Harwood, Group CEO who explains, “Tony's success in driving the EMEA business over the past three and a half years has been a key factor in appointing him to this significant and key role for TOWER Software's success going forward. These structural changes are designed to strengthen the management of the northern hemisphere business and create a new position with responsibility for leading our continued high growth in the region.”

Harwood continues, “Whilst we remain committed to the public sector where we have unrivalled credentials, we are also engaging with a growing number of large companies in the private sector who are considering the global deployment of our ECM (electronic content management) suite, TRIM Context. With the continued and rapidly accelerating expansion of the Company across the world, it has become increasingly important that we continue to act and operate as a global company.”

Throughout the year TOWER Software has continued to grow across the northern hemisphere, with additional offices in Denver, Dublin, Orlando, Ottawa and Vancouver to increase the Company’s worldwide footprint. TOWER Software’s European team continued its success with the addition of a further 24 people across its sales, marketing and professional services teams so far this year.
