TERMINALFOUR is having a very busy month -- perhaps nothing unusual for the WCM vendor -- but definitely worth noting. Along with securing seven new university contracts, sponsoring the eduWEB Conference 2008 in Atlantic City and attending the The Institutional Web Management Workshop this month, they have also appointed a new COO focused on expanding the company.
A New COO for TERMINALFOUR
Former eSpatia COO David Miller has joined TERMINALFOUR as their new COO (Chief Operating Officer). The plan is for Miller to leverage his 25 years of experience in management, venture capital and global technology development to help TERMINALFOUR scale their global sales and expansion strategy.
CMSWire told you a bit about this new sales and expansion strategy back in April. At that time, TERMINALFOUR managing director Piero Tintori said:
“As we transform ourselves from a regional market leader into a genuine international competitor, we will have to re-define our go-to-market strategy and add major new enhancements to our software platform.”
They have plans to invest EUR3M into the company to expand their market and further enhance their software including:
* Expansion into new markets in Europe, the Middle East and the US
* Continued development of their content management solution
* Development of international marketing plans
* A move to a larger headquarters in Dublin
Tintori says that David Miller is a "proven strategist with an outstanding record in growing business both domestically and internationally." Just what the doctor would order for a global expansion plan.
Conferences and Workshops to Find TERMINALFOUR
TERMINALFOUR is supporting the eduWEB Conference 2008 taking place in Atlantic City, NJ July 21-23, 2008. This is a key event for University and College webmasters and web managers. This seems an appropriate place for TERMINALFOUR considering their numerous university and college implementations of Site Manager 6.0.
You will also find TERMINALFOUR at the IWMW 2008 in Aberdeen July 22-24th. Called the Institutional Web Management Workshop 2008: The Great Debate, they will have a number of project teams there to meet existing and prospective clients.
