October 29, 2007

Curtis Palmer Transitions to New Role

Birmingham, Ala., 29 October 2007 – After five years of leading the charge for economic growth through technology, TechBirmingham’s President and CEO recently informed the board of directors that he will resign his position at the end of this month. “TechBirmingham has reached a stage that will allow it to be led by its volunteer board of directors,” said Curtis Palmer. He will pursue entrepreneurial opportunities in Birmingham and remain on the board of directors.

Since TechBirmingham was created to implement its Strategic Plan developed in 2001, the not-for-profit has been at the center of a growing technology economic sector in the Birmingham region. It has made a widespread positive impact on regional technology business and, as an organization, will continue to work diligently to build on everyone’s successes.

Several members of the board’s Executive Committee have accepted leadership roles under the new structure. Drew Deaton of Cardinal Health’s MedMined will lead the TechMixer efforts. David Gray of DAXKO will organize the Executive Peer Group program. And, as part of the division of labor, Palmer will be responsible for the TechBirmingham Ecycling Day efforts and continue to work with James Childs of Bradley Arant in organizing future Entrepreneur Accelerator Programs. Additional role assignments will be made at the organization’s fall board meeting.

“It is truly an honor to have been entrusted with the responsibility of bringing many of the components of the community’s strategic plan into fruition and to be allowed to make a personal impact,” said Palmer. “It is time for me to re-enter the entrepreneur marketplace in which we have all invested so much time and talent. I remain committed to the success of TechBirmingham and all that it means to the area.”

“On behalf of TechBirmingham, I thank Curtis for his many contributions to the organization and to the community. We are excited about the new structure of TechBirmingham, its volunteer leadership from the tech community, and its focus moving forward,” said David Gray, Chairman of TechBirmingham and CEO of DAXKO. “In order to discuss the leadership’s ideas and field questions, the public is encouraged to come see what all the excitement is about at the November 6th TechMixer event at Innovation Depot.” Registration details for the semi-annual event can be found at

ComFrame Software Opens New Office in Beijing, China

October 19, 2007

International location established to deliver accelerated software results and technology investment optimization for ComFrame customers

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ — ComFrame Software Corporation, the leading provider of elegant enterprise enablement for companies across diverse industries in the southeastern United States, today announced it has opened a new office in Beijing, China. ComFrame’s Beijing team will provide software engineering services for companies in America, China and other locations, drawing upon the advanced project management structure, highly- evolved software development processes, methodologies, best practices and quality enhancement approaches that have been the hallmarks of ComFrame software delivery. The Beijing team will collaborate on software projects with ComFrame’s U.S.-based business and IT professionals, extending the company’s proficiency in a wide variety of processes, applications, tools and technologies.

The Beijing office will be led by Frank Chen, Director of Technology, Overseas Division and Craig McWherter, Vice President and General Manager of the Beijing Division. Both of these men, recently promoted to establish and expand the Beijing software enterprise, have the information technology knowledge and business leadership skills necessary to pursue ComFrame success in the Chinese marketplace.

“The strategic location of the Beijing division, as well as the relocation of two key ComFrame resources with 20-plus years of combined experience in the IT sector, enables us to better serve our client base,” said Marc Guthrie, CEO of ComFrame Software Corporation. “Unlike other companies that are outsourcing software projects overseas, we have chosen to establish a ComFrame presence in Beijing that will be managed by our own people. This gives us a real advantage in controlling the quality of the work and managing project schedules, while maintaining a spirit of innovation in all our projects.”

Frank Chen brings with him more than 8 years of experience in the technology industry. He will be responsible for the company’s technology and its strategic direction for the public sector. Prior to joining ComFrame, Chen graduated from a top-three business school in China, where he majored in foreign trade. After graduating, Chen worked for Jian Enterprise Group as a business analyst. In 1995, Chen traveled to the United States, where he received his M.S. from the University of Alabama in Computer Science and Mathematics, became Broadvision certified and became a Sun-certified Java programmer. Chen joined ComFrame in 2002. “I look forward to coupling my understanding of international business and foreign trade with my architectural experience,” said Chen, “to lead technical teams that span the international dateline to deliver precision results for ComFrame clients.”

Craig McWherter also has more than 15 years of experience in the IT industry. Growing up the son of an Army officer, McWherter spent many years overseas among diverse cultures. He obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Management and Information Systems from the University of Phoenix, graduating at the top of his class. McWherter has worked in C, C++, Visual Basic, Java, and .NET, earning the title of senior architect. “My vision for the Beijing team,” said McWherter, “is to be able to apply my diverse technical experience and business leadership skills to developing innovative approaches for exceeding the expectations of ComFrame clients in helping them overcome their most complex and overwhelming technology challenges.”

“This is an exciting time in the evolution of ComFrame,” said Marc Guthrie, “as we focus on not only growing our domestic operation but also take the leap from being an American company to an international one. We look forward to delivering to our clients what the Beijing division will be able to offer in terms of cost-savings and an expanded technological base.”
