Eagle Ridge Partners, a leading Executive Search Firm, today announced it has placed Jack Robinson as CFO of RedPrairie Corporation. The search was handled by Rick Wargo, Eagle Ridge Partner's CEO and follows his successful recruitment of John Jazwiec to RedPrairie as the company's CEO in 2002 and his recruitment of Steve Stanislaus as the company's head of Human Resources last month, completing the company's executive leadership team.

Jack Robinson joins RedPrairie from IBM, where he was Vice President, Business Development Finance for the Global Sales & Distribution Group. During his tenure at IBM Robinson also served as Vice President Finance & Operations for IBM.com, and Vice President Plans and Controls for IBM’s Software Group. Prior to IBM, Robinson was Vice President of Finance for the Home and Small Business Group of DELL. Previous executive positions include President, Foodservice Division, Sara Lee; Vice President, Finance and Strategic Planning – Asia Division for Colgate Palmolive; and Vice President Finance – International, for Burger King Corporation.

The company has gained significant market momentum since Wargo recruited Jazwiec in 2002, achieving record revenues and profitability in 2003, including a 44% increase in license revenues over 2002.

"Jack Robinson is an outstanding person and businessman, who is joining a world class management team at RedPrairie", commented Rick Wargo. "Like John Jazwiec, Jack is an Eagle - a leader with exceptional vision, drive and results orientation, but who, like Eagles, are found one at a time, not in flocks", Wargo added.
