LONDON -- CopperEye announced today that after leading the company as CEO for the past four years, Ms. Mitchell will transition from her day to day operating role to board member, with a focus on CopperEye’s strategic vision, including developing new vertical markets. The Board has appointed Carmen Carey, whom Ms. Mitchell recruited to CopperEye as SVP of Global Sales and Services in May 2007 as her successor.

During the past year, CopperEye achieved broader penetration with UK and European Telecom providers, signed a reseller agreement with Sun Microsystems, and completed a strategic investment and licensing program with In-Q-Tel, the independent strategic investment firm that identifies innovative technology solutions to support the missions of the Central Intelligence Agency.

“Due to the explosive growth in the amount of data organizations need to capture, store and make instantly accessible, the market is primed for CopperEye solutions,” said Allen Swann, CopperEye Chairman of the Board. “I would like to thank Kate for leading the company forward over the last four years. She has laid the foundation, and taken us to a position that we can now exploit going forward. As CopperEye embarks on this next high growth phase of its evolution from technology provider to market leader, the company will benefit from Carmen’s experience at MessageLabs, where she was instrumental in supporting the company’s growth from $40 million to over $100 million in annual revenues.”
