NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 6, 2005 -- Leadership Directories announced today that it has entered into partnership with global content aggregator, Alacra, to provide Alacra clients with access to information on approximately a half million United States leaders and executives. Content includes biographical and contact information on the leaders of federal, state, and leading local governments, as well as information on leaders and executives across the corporate, financial, nonprofit, association, and legal sectors.

Leadership Directories content will fuel Alacra Corporate Connections, a new application that helps investment banks, consulting firms, law firms, and corporations leverage existing relationships for business development. Content will also be available through other Alacra solutions, including Alacra Book, Alacra Links, and Alacra Compliance. The Alacra repository is comprised of more than 100 business information databases, as well as a comprehensive archive of related websites. Alacra clients enjoy the ability to combine disparate sources to create a unique view of a company, industry, or individual.

Updated monthly, Leadership Directories content includes information on leaders and executives across the public and private sectors, in addition to information on their affiliations and organizations' structures.
