Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 26, 2007
VirtualAgility has appointed Edward J. Kfoury, a retired 30-year veteran of IBM and former division president, to its Board of Advisors. During his distinguished career at IBM, Mr. Kfoury led multiple divisions and initiatives. He served as Vice President, Development, IBM Personal Computer Division, head of Asia/Pacific Operations, and Vice President of the Display Business Unit, following various sales, marketing and business development positions.
Kfoury also served as Chairman of the Board of CADAM, a 3D modeling and computer-aided design automation software company eventually acquired by IBM from Lockheed in 1989. Mr. Kfoury will advise VirtualAgility on a variety of business building issues.
According to VirtualAgility president Stuart Rudolph, "We are very pleased to have someone with Ed's breadth of experience and creativity available to guide our growth. His insights into growing a company from early stage to merger or acquisition are most welcome."
Kfoury is not exactly retired. He's "having a lot of fun" advising small, private companies that are early in their development. He is "interested in the VirtualAgility WorkCenter product because it has just started to scratch the surface of all the industries that need this kind of solution." It reminds him "of the excitement of the early days of the personal computer when it was a brand new way of working, a paradigm shift," said Kfoury. He currently serves on the boards of six privately held firms. He also serves on the board of Dendrite International, and two other publicly held companies.
A long time activist in land conservation, Mr. Kfoury co-founded and continues to serves as President of the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust. He is also a trustee of the Maine Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, and an advisory trustee of the Maine Audubon Society.
