Current Infobright Board Member Brings Successful Open Source, Database and Data Warehouse Experience to the Position

TORONTO--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Infobright, the open source data warehousing company, announced today the appointment of Mark Burton as Interim CEO, replacing Miriam Tuerk effective immediately.

The Infobright Board would like to acknowledge Miriam Tuerk's significant contributions to the company from its inception through its successful transition to the first commercial open source data warehousing company.

Burton, currently an independent board member at Infobright, Zend Technologies and MuleSoft (formerly MuleSource), formerly held senior executive positions at some of the industry's most notable companies, including MySQL and Informatica.

Burton will continue his Board positions in addition to his role at Infobright.

"Mark is ideal for the Interim CEO role at Infobright," said Chairman Andre Boisvert. "He has the right technology, open source and executive leadership background. His experience and success at Informatica and MySQL are directly applicable to Infobright. He is well versed and ready to step in to drive the business until a full-time CEO is named."

"Data warehousing and analytics continue to be a bright growth segment of the economy," said Burton. "Infobright has breakthrough technology that is already having an impact on the industry. I look forward to working more closely with the Infobright team and their customers."
