DENVER – HyperSpace Communications, Inc. (HCI), a worldwide leader in the development of Internet acceleration software products, today announced that Mark Endry, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of J.D. Edwards, has joined the HCI advisory board.
“We consider the addition of Mark to our advisory board a huge asset toward achieving our business goals,” said John P. Yeros, HCI Chairman. “He is recognized both for his best-practices approach to information technology and his vision in integrating information technology as a critical element of business success.”
Under Mr. Endry’s leadership, J.D. Edwards consistently ranks high in IT customer satisfaction while reducing costs and operating more efficiently. Mark was named Colorado CIO of the Year, and ComputerWorld magazine’s Premier 100 IT Leader. He was identified by ComputerWorld as a “visionary,” a leader that is able to “establish a vision and to articulate that vision to inspire others around them…these leaders have a good sense of where the industry will be in the future and how a company should fit into that picture.”
“I look forward to working with HCI as it continues to gain traction in this rapidly-evolving marketplace,” said Mr. Endry. “As a senior executive in charge of information technology, I can contribute a practical perspective to the value proposition that HCI brings to its customers via its products and services.”
Mark joined J.D. Edwards in 1995 as director of infrastructure services, where he transformed the information technology division into a customer-focused organization and implemented a world-class network. He was responsible for international voice services, data services, electronic mail, personal computing and midrange computing platforms.
From 1979 to 1995 Mark held positions with Digital Equipment Corporation in Columbus and Boston. While he was director of global telecommunications and networking, DEC achieved a best-in-class rating by the IT Benchmark Forum in four categories. As director of operations for a 2,700-employee subsidiary he was responsible for organizational design and development and financial planning and reporting. As corporate telecommunications engineering manager he created a full-service software and network engineering organization distributed across the company’s operations in the United States, Finland and France.
Mark serves as an executive board member for the University of Colorado Denver Center for IT Innovation in addition to his new role on the HCI advisory board.
