Press release from the issuing company
New York, November 4, 2003 -- Mimeo, Inc., the leading provider of web-based, on-demand digital printing and distribution, today announced that sales executive Robert A. Krauss has joined the company as Vice President of Business Development. Krauss has nearly 20 years of experience in the high technology industry, with companies such as Tumbleweed Communications, Novell and SoftSolutions.
Krauss, who will be nased in Mimeo's New York headquarters, will help to accelerate Mimeo's expansion plans by expanding the company's business partner network and increasing its sales channels.
During his five years at Tumbleweed, a leader in secure messaging and content filtering, Krauss served as a vice president in a number of sales related capacities. As Vice President of Business & Channel Development, Krauss, 41, was responsible for building the company's sales efforts including service providers, channel, OEM, and inside sales. Ultimately the deals negotiated by Krauss with major corporations produced revenue that was critical in building the business and resulted in the company's successful initial public offering in 1999.
At Novell, Krauss served in both the Advanced Technology and Groupware divisions. As Director of Marketing of the Advanced Technology Division, he was responsible for all business and marketing related activities that transformed a cost center into a revenue producing business unit. This included the transition of two separate R&D organizations into one division delivering linguistic, searching, and electronic publishing solutions to Novell product groups and external partners.
"More customers are discovering the benefits of Mimeo every day," said John Lyons, CEO of Mimeo. "Bob brings a great mix of technology and marketing expertise that will be instrumental in helping us to accelerate growth and expand our partnerships."
