SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 26, 2007 -- Gartner BPM Summit -- Cordys, the leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) solutions based upon an integrated SOA architecture, today announced the appointment of Howard Green as Senior Vice President of Market Development.

Green brings a strong track record in developing market strategies and building franchise markets at companies such as Apple, IBM, Sprint, and has also led the marketing function at a number of venture backed firms. Most recently, Green was President of CGNET Services International, a global managed network services provider whose enterprise clients include many of the most prominent non-profit organizations in the World, including Save the Children, Conservation International, Carnegie Hall, and the Hewlett, Packard and Rockefeller Foundations.

"Cordys' innovative technology has the capability to rapidly transform how an enterprise fundamentally manages their business," said Howard Green, Senior Vice President of Market Development at Cordys, Inc.
