FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - RollStream Inc., the leading provider of enterprise community management solutions, today announced that industry veterans Phillip Merrick and David Sequino have been elected as chairman of the board and executive vice president of worldwide sales, respectively.

He is the founder of Bibury Partners, an early stage technology investment and advisory firm, and also served as Chairman of EnterpriseDB. As Chairman and CEO of webMethods, Inc., he led the company as it pioneered Web services and XML-based software integration technologies, demonstrated the strongest revenue growth of any U.S. software company in the period 1998 through 2002, and achieved the most successful software IPO to date in February 2000.

"Phillip brings a wealth of experience to our business, including a deep understanding of how to drive high growth software companies," said Kristin Muhlner, CEO of RollStream. "We are extremely excited to have Phillip assume the role of chairman and believe his strategic insights will be a great benefit to the board and to the business."

"With mounting interest from companies seeking to collaborate more effectively with their trading partner communities, RollStream is uniquely positioned to solve a problem that has yet to be addressed."

Sequino enters his new role at RollStream with over 19 years of experience in sales and business development in the software and embedded system technology industries. Prior to joining RollStream, he served as Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Certicom, where he was responsible for sales, business development and patent licensing for security hardware and software solutions and as Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Business Development at Teja Technologies (now ARC International).

"We're excited to add David Sequino to our executive team," said Muhlner. "With his depth of experience, David understands intimately the concerns of customers ranging from managers to C-level executives, and his expertise will enable RollStream to achieve strong growth as we help organizations build high-performing business communities."

"Businesses face many challenges when managing their trading partner relationships, and RollStream is one of the rare companies that truly understands that," said Sequino.
