Riggs Eckelberry Drives Success for Panda Software USA



Sep 17, 2003, 01:00 ET from Panda Software

    GLENDALE, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Multinational security software
 developer Panda Software commended Riggs Eckelberry for tripling total US
 sales levels since his appointment earlier this year as General Manager, Panda
 USA.  Mr. Eckelberry is responsible for Panda's drive to become a key US
 player in its core antivirus business.
     Eckelberry is a "practical visionary" with a reputation for transforming
 technology ventures.  In the 80s he pioneered the use of UNIX-based
 supermicrocomputers in businesses.  In the 90s he turned an unknown utility
 called CleanSweep into a world brand that Symantec still markets today.  After
 a go-go experience selling technology companies during the Internet boom, he
 founded TechTransform, a consultancy that commercializes new technologies.
     "We are very proud to have Riggs Eckelberry at the helm of our US unit.
 He is actively making Panda a threat to the existing order and that's just
 what we wanted," said Modesto Rodriguez of Panda Software International.
     "There is nothing more exciting than an upset play in the software
 business," added Eckelberry.  "Panda's cutting-edge antivirus lab and its
 culture for excellence and integrity make it a real candidate for the first
 tier.  This is a case study in the making and I'm honored to be part of the
 team."
