Chuck Teubner Joins SpringCM Board of Directors

Former Sybase, Groove Networks, and USinternetworking Executive to Serve as Executive Chairman

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2013) - SpringCM®, the leader in Content Cloud Services for the enterprise, announced today the appointment of Chuck Teubner as executive chairman of SpringCM's board of directors.

Chuck has played a key role guiding many of technology's biggest names through growth and transformation. These companies focused on security, collaboration and cloud computing -- all areas of competitive differentiation for SpringCM. Chuck will work with SpringCM's executive team and board, helping the company as it continues its aggressive expansion to meet the growing demand for Content Cloud Services.

Most recently Chuck served as chairman and CEO of two security software companies and the chairman of SkyBitz, a satellite asset tracking company acquired by Talaria. He was the president and COO of Groove Networks, a leader in collaboration technologies that became a key part of Microsoft SharePoint. He also served as the COO of USinternetworking, the pioneering Application Service Provider that was a precursor to today's cloud computing movement. At Sybase Chuck led the North America sales team to over $500 million in revenue during a period of explosive growth. Chuck is also a partner at Newport Board Group, a firm that provides executive advisory services to help companies develop and implement expansion strategies and manage growth.

"Chuck is an outstanding addition to the SpringCM team," said Skip Glass, Operating Partner, Foundation Capital. "His successful track record running and scaling companies focused on content and security is an ideal fit for SpringCM. That background is exactly what we were after when we decided to add additional firepower to the board. Chuck will add tremendous value as we significantly grow the company through customer and partner acquisition."

"Chuck's deep experience leading companies through rapid growth is perfect for SpringCM," said Christopher Junker, CEO of SpringCM. "As businesses migrate from old-school content management and risky consumer class offerings, we're seeing a tremendous demand for our offerings. This is a huge year for us, and I'm excited to have Chuck's assistance."

"SpringCM has a significant competitive advantage in addressing the needs of enterprises who want to do more than store and share content," said Chuck Teubner, Executive Chairman, SpringCM. "The team has done a terrific job building a highly secure product and landing a number of marquee customers. I've also been impressed with the volume of prospective partners and customers looking to work with us. We have big plans, and I look forward to working with Chris, the Board and the SpringCM team on extending our leadership."

Content Matters. We Make It Work For You
Content is the enterprise's single, greatest business lever and its least exploited asset. When a business successfully puts content to work, it fuels competitive advantage and drives bigger outcomes. When teams can't find content, when content isn't current, when people can't surface the right content for the task at hand, it's not just an annoyance -- it's disruptive. These content hazards increase costs, stall revenue, and frustrate customers and employees. Companies that have a sense of urgency around increasing business agility, maximizing talent or creating competitive differentiation choose SpringCM. They understand the critical role content plays at every level of the enterprise -- inside and outside the business -- and are freeing content from legacy, old-school systems and risky, consumer-class cloud storage applications.
