JacobsRimell Announces Appointment of Chairman

London, UK, — October 20, 2004 JacobsRimell, a leading provider of online service provisioning for cable, mobile and telecommunications service providers, today announced that it has appointed a new non-executive Chairman to its board of directors.


Hugh Mc Cartney (54) brings a wealth of experience to the role. During his 25 years in the software industry, McCartney has worked for companies such as Ingres, Sybase and most recently Merant, where he was Chief Operating Officer.   Until recently McCartney was Chairman of KVault Software Limited (KVS), a leading provider of e-mail archiving software who recently was acquired by VERITAS Software Corporation (Nasdaq: VRTS) in an all-cash transaction valued at approximately US$225 million.


Said McCartney: “My objectives are simply to deliver value to customers and help JacobsRimell expand into new markets. With the explosion in the cable market, it is an exciting time to join the company and the role of service management applications will continue to grow in importance as operators continue to deploy new services”


Following the announcement in July 2004 that JacobsRimell was to become the provisioning provider for Comcast Corporation, to help simplify and speed the delivery of new video, voice and data services to customers, McCartney says he is delighted with the progress to date. “In North America and Europe JacobsRimell is now successfully engaged with leaders in the cable industry – it’s a tremendous platform for the company’s continued growth,” he added.
