London, May 29 2001 - Lost Wax, a European e-commerce technology company, appoints Mike Harris, founder and Executive Vice Chairman of Egg plc, as Non-Executive Chairman. Mike joined the Lost Wax board as a non-executive director in January 2001. Taking on the role of Chairman will enable him to guide the strategic development of Lost Wax more actively and to spend more time sharing his considerable experience of building successful brands such as Egg, First Direct and Mercury with the Lost Wax board.

“Mike’s decision to take on the leadership role of Chairman after three months as a non-executive director is a huge endorsement of the Lost Wax team and our vision for the potential of agent technology” commented Tom Ilube, CEO of Lost Wax.

Mike Harris is Executive Vice Chairman of Egg plc, Britain’s leading online banking and financial services company. Egg’s successful proposition to customers has set the agenda for the financial services industry and has inspired a series of imitators. Prior to launching Egg, Mike had a similar impact on the banking industry in 1988 as Founder and Chief Executive of First Direct, launching the world’s first mould-breaking direct telephone banking operation.

Mike Harris added, “I am delighted to step up to the role of Chairman with Lost Wax, as we take the company through its next stage of development. I intend to be very active in helping Tom and his team achieve their vision of building a valuable, long-term, innovative technology company.”
