and COO at CheckFree (News - Alert) and CFO at Dun & Bradstreet Software. He currently

"I'm excited to join Eze Software Group and look forward to working with
an experienced senior team that has established itself as the best in
the business. The company's recent accomplishments and continued record
of success are a testament to the talent and hard work of its 800
employees around the globe," said Mr. Sinisgalli. "I look forward to
leading such a strong organization, helping it execute against its
short- nd long-term strategic vision while accelerating its growth even
further in the years ahead."
"I am extremely proud of what the team has accomplished over the years
that I have been with the company," said Mr. Gavin. "I am thrilled to
know that I can transition the CEO role to someone with the talent and
experience that Pete Sinisgalli brings to the table. In addition, Pete
recognizes and embraces the long-standing cultural uniqueness of Eze
Software Group and shares our belief in building a business focused on
being 'a partner and not just a vendor.'"

Software Group when I say that we are thrilled to have somebody of
Pete's caliber and background join the Eze Software team," said Jeff
Shoreman, co-president of Eze Software Group. "Pete brings a wealth of
experience that will be extremely beneficial to us as we continue our
rapid growth and significantly increase our long-term R&D investment."
