HumanConcepts Expands Executive Team, Appoints President

New Appointee, Luis Rivera, Brings 17 Years Executive Experience in Global Market Expansion and Business Operations; Will Lead Global Marketing, Sales, Business Development and Customer Success

SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - HumanConcepts, developer of HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, announced today that Luis Rivera has been appointed president, overseeing marketing, sales, business development and customer success for the company's suite of organizational planning solutions.

Rivera brings 17 years of experience in global market expansion, business development, mergers and acquisitions, business re-engineering, finance and investor relations to HumanConcepts. Most recently CEO of online marketing services provider Lyris Inc., Rivera grew company revenues from $4 million to $45 million and was named as one of the 100 most influential leaders by B-to-B Magazine.

Rivera will report to HumanConcepts CEO Martin Sacks. "Luis is a key addition to our executive team," said Sacks, who founded HumanConcepts in 2000. "The timing is good. Business has been very robust. With our enhanced enterprise focus from the divestment of our SMB business, and the recent release of our HumanConcepts Organizational Planning Suite, the new SaaS platform for managing organizational change, we see revenue growth continuing to accelerate. With his impressive revenue generation background, I expect Luis to further ramp our sales and marketing organization, broaden our global reach and deepen our partnerships with leading industry players."

Prior to Lyris, Luis oversaw global business development and sales at Turbolinux, where he led the launch of international subsidiaries in Argentina, Australia, Germany and the UK. Rivera also led international sales at IMSI, a publicly traded software publishing company, and business development at @Road, a mobile resource management solution provider.

"I'm thrilled to be joining HumanConcepts at this stage in its evolution," said Rivera. "HumanConcepts is recognized around the world as the leading provider of high-value organizational change management solutions that help enterprises visualize, plan, model and transition their workforces to an optimal state. The industry is in a dynamic phase of growth and innovation right now, and I'm excited to help steer HumanConcepts through the promising opportunities ahead."
