BEA Taps Industry Veterans for New Division & CTO Roles

Mark Carges Named Executive Vice President, Business Interaction Division; Rob Levy Appointed Chief Technology Officer

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEA Systems, Inc. today announced new executive appointments under the leadership of BEA chairman and chief executive officer, Alfred Chuang.

Effective immediately, Mark Carges, 43, will lead the Business Interaction Division, as executive vice president, reporting to Chuang. The new division will be central to the company's AquaLogic brand, focused on enabling enterprise portals, collaborative communities and composite applications. The Plumtree products have been re-branded as the AquaLogic User Interaction suite of products.

The Business Interaction Division was formed following BEA's acquisition of Plumtree Software, which closed Oct. 20, 2005, and gives BEA/Plumtree a combined 20.8 percent market share according to IDC(1). Enterprise portals continue to rank in the top 10 technology focus areas across many CIO surveys, and IDC analysts estimate annual market growth at 14 percent(1). BEA's Business Interaction Division will be focused on growing BEA's market share, while providing comprehensive solutions to help customers leverage multi- platform portal technologies as part of their Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) deployments.

"Portals are becoming a key integration point for the service-enabled enterprise," said Chuang. "With our acquisition of Plumtree and appointment of Mark to run this new division, BEA leads the market for multi-platform, transactional and collaborative portals. Standalone software stacks will increasingly be replaced by portals that access modular software components linked via SOA for a more personalized user experience."

Carges has been with BEA for more than nine years, and has been instrumental in leading the strategy, development and integration of several BEA products and acquisitions. Most recently, Carges was chief technology officer at BEA where he focused on leading some of BEA's key initiatives, including BEA's blended open source strategy. Prior to his position as CTO, Carges held various management positions including executive vice president of Strategic Global Accounts as well as leading the Enterprise Framework division responsible for many of BEA's WebLogic Platform product lines.

Rob Levy, 46, will assume the role of chief technology officer, effective immediately. Levy has more than 25 years experience leading all aspects of the computer software and services business and a proven track record of running large organizations with more than 500 employees. In his new role as chief technology officer, Levy will lead the company's efforts to incubate new technology areas and foster BEA's commitment to technological innovations and open standards. Levy continues to report to Wai Wong, executive vice president, products.

Previously Levy held various management positions at Computer Associates (CA) including serving as senior vice president and chief technology strategist responsible for defining, articulating and driving the execution of CA's global technology strategy and vision. Levy was also the senior vice president of development and brand unit executive for CA's AllFusion life cycle management solutions. Prior to CA, Levy served in executive management positions for several start-up ventures and was chairman and CEO of MQ Tech, Inc., a middleware services and consulting company.

"Great leadership inspires great innovation," said Chuang. "Both Mark and Rob provide depth and expertise that can help BEA continue its commitment to deliver industry-leading innovation into the future."
