BriefsMIS AG U.S. Executives Buy Majority of its North American Division
SHORT HILLS, N.J. (July 23, 2001) -- MIS AG, a leading European provider of business intelligence solutions, today announced that the executives of the North American division have purchased majority ownership of its North American company. Exact terms of the agreement were not disclosed except to confirm that the executives hold the majority stake of MIS AG North America. Politano will continue as the North American company’s chief executive officer, heading the group formed to run its operations. James T. (Jim) McCarthy, formerly director of sales, North American partner channels, will act as vice president of business development and partner channels. Herbert Birman brings over 18 years of financial management expertise to the newly created position of vice president of finance and operations. MIS DecisionWare, our integrated suite for business intelligence, will be our flagship offering in North America,” shared Politano. “Companies such as Hewlett-Packard, 3Com and Multifoods are already using MIS DecisionWare to enable collaborative business intelligence and reporting throughout their organizations, moving organizations from single threaded business intelligence to true collaboration. We anticipate that more and more U.S. and Canadian companies will be interested in MIS DecisionWare, to eliminate the barriers that older, less sophisticated business intelligence software products have created in their companies, thus preventing true knowledge collaboration.” The company name MIS AG will remain unchanged here in North America.
