Jon Lieberman, Former CEO, Federal KM Software Expert
COLUMBIA, S.C., Sept. 27 /CNW/ -- Collexis (OTC Bulletin Board: CLXS), a
leading developer of knowledge management (KM) and discovery software,
recently announced that Jon Lieberman has assumed the position of General
Manager for Government and Strategic Accounts for the Americas.
"Jon brings us 20 plus years of experience leading services, systems and
software teams with federal government contract work," said Collexis CEO Bill
Kirkland. "After beginning his career in the U.S. Department of Labor public
information office, Jon built two successful media and technology services
companies for government contracting. In the last ten years, he had
represented a series of vanguard software technologies including Convera,
Siderean, and Vivisimo to federal and civilian clients, as well as arranged
key technology and integration partner business relationships."
Lieberman was Convera's most successful manager of DOD and defense
intelligence business over its more than 20-year history. He forged long-
lasting relationships with some of the military's most respected advisors. A
pioneer in the knowledge management industry, he has closed significant
business over the years in many government sectors such as the Army, Navy, Air
Force and joint commands under the Secretary of Defense.
"I am very excited to be working for a company that is realizing the long
awaited promise of knowledge management. Collexis goes way beyond basic
information retrieval to extract and present the knowledge locked up in
documents. There have been so many disappointments in this field," explained
Lieberman. "So many software companies promise KM solutions, but really only
provide information retrieval tools. Collexis helps you put knowledge to work
solving real problems such as content navigation and categorization, expert
location, suspect identification, tracking and trending of important concepts
and even prediction of new relationships."
Lieberman grew up near New York City and earned a B.S. in Communications
from Cornell University and a Masters degree in Technology Management from the
University of Maryland.
