In November, it was announced that Ameritech Library Services (ALS) had been sold to a private investment group. In late December, the company adopted a new name, epixtech, inc.
The sale and the subsequent name change will have no effect on the composition of company management. Lana Porter will continue to serve as President and CEO. Kate Noerr, Vice President for International Sales and Marketing, will continue to lead the company's international sales and marketing departments as well as all operations outside North America. Tyler Gingrich, Vice President of Software Engineering, will continue to focus on designing multilingual software and Internet-based services. Scott Wheelhouse, Vice President of Product Management, will continue to lead development of product plans and marketing strategies to further improve client communications. Vice President of Customer Operations Margaret (Meg) Fisher will continue to direct support of the company's customer services worldwide, and chief Financial Officer Rick Lawhun will continue to oversee the company's financial goals. Corporate address and telephone numbers also remain the same, but there is a new web address.
