Former NASDAQ Head Joins Metastorm Board of Directors
Severna Park, Md., J. Patrick Campbell, former
president of NASDAQ U.S. Markets and a decorated Gulf
War veteran, is the newest member of the board of privately
held Metastorm. Campbell will help guide the company
as it continues to grow as a leading supplier of Business
Process Management (BPM) software.
While at NASDAQ, the customary stock exchange for technology
companies, Campbell was an influence that helped it
become the worlds largest stock market and presided
over several momentous events: institution of a new
management team focused on integrity and regulation
following an unfavorable SEC inquiry; eliminating the
perception of a conflict of interest through the separation
from founder and parent the National Association of
Securities Dealers; creation of new products and better
access to information for investors that resulted in
greater visibility and profitability.
Campbells other credentials include serving as
NASDAQs COO, executive vice president and board
member. He also oversaw equity trading, research and
portfolio management as senior executive vice president
of The Ohio Company. As a US Air Force Command Pilot,
Campbell ran flight operations and flew multiple missions
in KC-135 refueling tankers during the Gulf War for
which he received a Bronze Star and two air medals.
One look at Pats background shows that
he has unsurpassed business acumen, especially when
it comes to fast-growing technology companies,"
says Avi Hoffer, Metastorms chairman and CEO.
"He is a hands-on executive who certainly will
help us achieve the aggressive goals weve set.
