SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - Recommind, the leader in predictive information management and analysis software, today announced the appointment of Jeff Epstein to its board of directors. Epstein, the former executive vice president and chief financial officer of Oracle, will also chair Recommind's Audit Committee.
Epstein comes to Recommind with a 30-year track record in business management and financial leadership.

"I have been watching Recommind for years, and have been consistently impressed by the caliber of their management and the excellence of their technology," Epstein said.

The genius of their CORE platform is that it can be applied to all sorts of tasks in any number of industries. Wherever it's important to pinpoint just the right information at just the right moment, Recommind makes it possible. I'm looking forward to working closely with the board and the rest of the Recommind team to help them capitalize on the tremendous opportunities they have in front of them."
"We're extremely proud to have Jeff Epstein join our board of directors," said Bob Tennant, CEO, Recommind. "His deep knowledge of the enterprise software industry and his years of experience guiding public companies are simply invaluable. Jeff is one of the few executives in technology who knows not only how to grow a multibillion-dollar business but how to sustain it. We're privileged to have his guidance as we prepare to introduce new products, enter new markets and embark on the next stage of our growth."
