Bluenog Appoints New CEO, Moves Kuppusamy Back to CTO
Bluenog (news, site) co-founder Suresh Kuppusamy has stepped aside to make room for the new CEO, Joe Valley.

Valley packs a ton of experience, including CEO positions at NCT, Inc., MIS USA, Momentum Software corporation and Seranin Software Corporation. He has also served as the president and COO for QueryObjean, an Amex-traded global business intelligence software company.

"Joe's deep experience in the enterprise software market, outstanding leadership qualities and focus on building profitable companies will enable us to expand and extend our Bluenog ICE product suite," said Sastry Taruvai, co-founder and chief information officer. "We are excited to have Joe leading the Bluenog team towards its next phase of growth and success."

Though Kuppusamy is stepping down, he's not going very far. The co-founder will resume his post as Chief Technology Officer.

"The co-founders have built a great product and a great team," said Valley. "Now with the tremendous acceptance Bluenog ICE has received in the higher education market, we are poised to take the company into the burgeoning healthcare market as well."
