We are very pleased with the arrival of Mr. Hermes as Vice President Marketing, says Sören Stamer, CEO and Co-Founder of CoreMedia. He brings a wealth of international marketing and management experience in bringing enterprise technology companies to global markets.

Prior to CoreMedia, Mr. Hermes held senior global executive management positions at Cordys (Dutch start-up), Definiens (German start-up), Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories (USA, California, part of Alcatel-Lucent), and Progress Software (USA, Massachusetts).

Mr. Hermes' appointment is yet another step of CoreMedia to further internationalize the operation and guide the organization in the rapidly changing CMS market. Companies see more and more value in social networks like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. They are challenged to set-up and manage a web-infrastructure that maximizes the business value these networks bring. A social content management system is required to help companies to unfold the synergies that come with these spreading networks and linked technologies.

I am very pleased to be part of the CoreMedia organization, expressed the newly appointed Vice President Marketing. This company has unique content management system capabilities to lead organizations in harnessing the value of social networks. With CoreMedia, companies can put their customer relation at the centre of attention - on all channels and social networks and thus gain a high return on engagement.

Mr. Hermes lives with his wife and three children in the Netherlands. He is a graduate of the Hogere Economische School in The Hague and holds a bachelor degree in Management Information Systems and Marketing.
