4 August 2008

29West, Inc., the market leader in low-latency messaging solutions, today announced the expansion of its New York operations. Leading this new surge in growth are new hires Michael Guse, Director of Software Engineering, and Matt Saxe, Director of East Coast Sales. With 29West experiencing rapid growth worldwide, the company has continued to grow both the sales and development and integration teams in all key markets.

As Director of Software Engineering for the Northeast, Guse will be in charge of building an integration consulting team and will focus on helping 29West customers during their selection and adoption of the 29West low-latency messaging products.

Guse's diverse industry background makes him a valuable addition to 29West. He has 12 years experience in the technology and financial sectors with firms like Swiss Re, JPMorgan Chase, Mercedes Benz USA, Lehman Brothers, and SunGard BRASS.

Of his appointment, Guse comments, "I am excited to join a company that has a proven and winning product in the low-latency messaging space - LBM and UME - and that continues to introduce more exciting features for their customers in the form of queueing, caching and desktop services.
I am looking forward to establishing and growing the support services team in the North East, which will allow us to address our growing customer needs in an even more direct way."

As Director of East Coast Sales, Matt Saxe joins the New York team and comes to 29West from IBM, where he was a top-performing Software Sales Executive. His experience with large-scale implementations will provide 29West with an added edge as it continues to roll out its best-of-breed low-latency solutions to major Wall Street banks and investment managers.

"I am so pleased to be part of such a fast-growing, international company," says Matt Saxe. "29West has demonstrated that its innovative solutions help customers realize incredible performance gains, which translate into a real competitive advantage for them. I look forward to leveraging my experience with major firms to expand our opportunities on the East Coast."

Guse and Saxe join Kevin Clancey, in leading the New York market expansion for 29West. Mark Mahowald, President and Founder of 29West, expects exciting developments as the New York office grows and brings on additional talent. "Michael Guse and Matt Saxe are welcome additions to 29West. I look forward to working with Michael and Matt to enhance the 29West customer experience and to introduce more firms to the competitive advantages of our industry leading, low-latency messaging solutions."
