High Tower Software Names New VP Sales

High Tech Sales and Marketing Professional Takes Top Sales Post at Security Software Development Firm

ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - High Tower Software, Inc. today announced that it has promoted its western regional sales director Bill Adams to vice president of sales. High Tower develops security software that simultaneously monitors hundreds of computer network security systems and detects unusual activities, which individually may go unnoticed, but collectively could indicate attacks or security breaches.

A seasoned sales executive, prior to joining High Tower, Adams held similar executive sales positions with a number of other high tech firms including eEye Digital of Aliso Viejo, Calif., Nexsys of Bend, Oregon, and San Diego-based Websense, Inc.

"We're pleased to have Bill heading up our sales operations," said High Tower chief executive Cleve Adams (no relation). "His long track record of leadership and success in building sales channels will help keep us on pace for another record year of growth."

The bulk of High Tower's clients are defense and government agencies, large educational institutions, and corporations with "high value assets" such as banking and finance, healthcare, and retail and commercial operations.

In his role, Adams will be responsible for overseeing High Tower's North American sales groups as well as its national network of software resellers. In addition to its headquarters in Aliso Viejo, Calif., the company maintains regional offices in San Francisco, Boise, Dallas, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. High Tower will also be opening offices in Chicago and Houston later this year.
