“2002 was a year of growth and strategic change at RealityWave as we moved our product line further into the enterprise,” said Bardwell Salmon, RealityWave CEO and president. “As we continue to grow in 2003 bringing on a CFO was paramount. We looked for an experienced financial professional who could also represent RealityWave in legal areas, specifically as general corporate, transactional, and intellectual property counsel. Bringing Todd on board will help us mange the growth we see in 2003 and bring us closer to our strategic vision.”
