Hubspan VP of Engineering Ian Huynh Recognized by Leading Supply Chain Industry Publication as an Exceptional Corporate Executive in Its 2010 Awards Program

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2010) - Hubspan, the leading provider of cloud-based business integration solutions, today announced that Ian Huynh, vice president of engineering, has been selected as a 2010 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Pro to Know. Huynh is featured in the magazine's February/March 2010 issue for his involvement and leadership in initiatives that helped supply and demand chain customers overcome challenges and grow their businesses.

With over 20 years experience in the software and services markets, Huynh is viewed as an expert by his peers and colleagues in integration, cloud computing and security. In addition to running Hubspan's engineering organization, he is a critical resource for prospects, customers and partners in understanding how IT solutions can help improve business processes and provide positive impact to the business.

Over the last year, Huynh worked closely with business and IT leaders to incorporate features and develop solutions that improve collaboration and information exchange between companies and their vast supply chain communities. By automating aspects of their supply chain management, Hubspan customers have been able to control costs while simultaneously growing revenues, increasing customer loyalty and winning new business. This has been critical over the past year, when IT organizations were under huge pressure to cut costs while improving efficiencies and driving business impact.

Huynh also drove an initiative with IBM to integrate key components of IBM WebSphere onto the Hubspan integration platform, creating a new joint solution called WebSpan. A software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, WebSpan provides a cost-effective, scalable alternative to on-premise products, allowing companies to start small and grow as needed, while vastly improving overall supply chain integration.

"Ian is one of those rare individuals who is both deeply technical and business savvy, and he ensures our technology is not only innovative but provides strong business impact for our customers," said Trisha Gross, president and CEO at Hubspan. "He is a critical player for us as we continue to expand our partnerships and work closely with customers to solve business challenges."
