CJ Fearnley Selected as One of the Region's Most Accomplished Young Professionals

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 7, 2006 -- CJ Fearnley, President and CEO of LinuxForce, Inc. -- a leading technology services provider specializing in the development, implementation, management and support of Linux-based systems, with a particular expertise in Debian GNU/Linux -- has been named to the Philadelphia Business Journal's prestigious "40 Under 40" list for 2006.

To compile this year's list, the Journal's editors graded more than 250 nominees on business success, community activities, regional impact and leadership ability, ultimately distilling the list down to 40 individuals.

"The 40 Under 40 program gives us an opportunity to put a spotlight on some of the young and increasingly influential leaders in our region," said Bernard Dagenais, editor of the Philadelphia Business Journal. "These individuals have established themselves as leaders through their professional and volunteer achievements. They have made a difference and can be expected to continue to do so in the years to come."

"This is a great honor," said Fearnley. "I'm proud to accept it on behalf of the entire LinuxForce team whose hard work and integrity have enabled us to build the success we've had over the past 10 years. It is also heartening that my contributions to the Philadelphia Linux User's group (www.phillylinux.org) and the Synergetics Collaborative (www.synergeticists.org) are being recognized."
