VICTORIA, BC--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - Terapeak, a member of the eBay Developers Program and an eBay Certified Solution Provider, today announced the appointment of Fred Speckeen as President and CEO.

Speckeen brings two decades of VP and CEO level experience gained internationally across the technology, media and semiconductor fields in hands-on roles spanning product management, sales, marketing, and technology licensing. He was most recently Director of Business Development -- a global role with TC Group A/S, providing digital audio technologies, products and IEEE1394 chip solutions for professional and commercial audio markets.

"With the rapid growth of the Terapeak and DataUnison branded businesses, we wanted to bring in a new CEO with the right combination of experience and skills to help us leverage the multitude of opportunities we're facing in the online commerce space," said Anthony Sukow, executive vice president of business development at Terapeak.

We feel we have found just that person in Fred."

"I'm excited to be joining this incredible team," said Speckeen. "Online transaction data is rapidly becoming the real-time pulse-monitor of the consumer marketplace. What started out as an idea formed by two brothers in University has turned into a multi-million dollar data analytics business with thousands of satisfied customers. They've built a foundation based on tremendous partnerships, two great brands, sophisticated and unique data processing and analytics techniques and technologies, and quality sales and delivery partnerships -- it's a winning combination we bring into this rapidly changing industry."
