<p>Steve Gapp Named to Lead Company’s American Operations</p>
<p>LANSA is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Gapp as president of LANSA, Inc., replacing John Siniscal, who is scheduled to retire at the end of 2007.</p>
<p>Gapp brings to LANSA his 25 years of experience and leadership in the SME environment. Most recently, he served as president and CEO of change management software vendor SoftLanding Systems until its acquisition earlier this year. Gapp’s previous company, which he founded in 1988, was Oasis 400 Software Ltd, a UK company that focused on the midrange market. After this was acquired by SoftLanding in 2002, Gapp was asked to step up and lead its global operations. His experience on this platform stretches back to the days of the IBM’s System/32 at Compass Ltd, a software consultancy firm based in the UK that was the forerunner of LANSA’s first business partner in Europe.</p>
<p>Of his appointment, Gapp said, “It's exciting to join LANSA at a time when its technology contributes such significant productivity gains to companies with demanding application development, modernization and business integration goals. With an experienced and highly capable staff already in place, we're primed to take LANSA's strong tradition of innovation to the next level to make it even easier for our customers to create truly progressive software solutions quickly and to easily integrate these LANSA-based solutions with others built with .NET and J2EE technologies."</p>
<p>John Siniscal, LANSA Inc.’s outgoing president, said of his decade at LANSA, “The IT market continues to evolve at a rapid pace but LANSA has kept ahead of the curve, enabling our customers to deploy leading edge solutions without getting caught in the technology jungle. It has been my pleasure to work with the talented and committed staff at LANSA that have made this possible. I’m confident that Steve has the skills and experience to lead the company to even greater success in the years ahead.”</p>
