Former Microsoft executive Paul Maritz invests in Mosaic Software
Rome, Italy, 8th October - Mosaic Software is today proud to announce from the European Technology Roundtable Exhibition (ETRE) 2001 that Paul Maritz has acquired an equity interest in the electronic funds transfer (EFT) software company. He will also be joining the board of directors of Mosaic Software with immediate effect. Maritz (46) retired last year after 14 years at Microsoft Corporation, where he served as senior member of the executive staff.
As group vice president of the Platforms Strategy and Developer Group, Maritz managed large parts of Microsoft's product development efforts, including Office, Databases, Tools, and all versions of Windows. He played a key role in helping guide Microsoft's strategy and business planning over the years. Before joining Microsoft, Maritz was involved with Intel Corporation for five years, where he was responsible for the marketing and development of tools to help create software for use with Intel microprocessors.
Willem van Biljon, Group CEO of Mosaic Software, says: "We are very proud that Paul has found our technology worthy of his personal investment, and are excited that he has also agreed to join our board of directors. His vision, which has had a major impact on the entire IT industry, will be of huge benefit to us."
"I am excited about Mosaic Software's commitment to quality products and the transaction space, and I look forward to working with them to further build a winning company," says Maritz.
