    GLENDALE, Calif., Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran technologist Riggs
 Eckelberry has completed a major project of market development for the US
 branch of Spanish anti-virus software company Panda Software.  In his eight
 months as general manager, he completed several key projects for the future
 expansion of Panda US.
     "Riggs Eckelberry developed excellent expansion programs and systems which
 will help us lead the way next year.  We thank him for his brilliant ideas and
 hard work," said Alan Wallace vice president of corporate communications for
 Panda Software US.
     Among the marketing team's successful programs was The Panda Challenge,
 which gave the company an opportunity to demonstrate to IT managers that they
 were inadequately protected by their existing security vendors.  This paid off
 when many corporate customers were hard-hit during the virus attacks of late
 August.
     "I'm very excited about Panda Software's prospects for 2004," said
 Eckelberry.  "The company is positioned as a technology winner and has
 developed a US commercialization platform which will enable it to move into
 the top tier of security vendors over the next twelve to eighteen months.  I'm
 proud of what this team has achieved and they have my full support for the
 future."
     Mr. Eckelberry will return to managing TechTransform, his technology
 consultancy network.  More case studies and articles are available at
 www.techtransform.com .  His trademark is a highly personalized, topical style
 with warm appeal to target audiences.
