BMC Founder Daniel Cloer Joins RICOMM Systems

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Daniel W. Cloer, a founder of BMC Software, Inc. , has joined RICOMM Systems as senior director of business development. Cloer will largely focus on growing RICOMM's training business which provides customized on-site training programs to users of EMC Corporation solutions for information storage and management, and on RICOMM's software product marketing and management for its well known AS/400 and i-Series products. RICOMM is a leading technology company that serves both government and commercial sectors. RICOMM's EMC-certified training helps customers derive the highest return on investment from EMC products.

"Dan has been a pioneer of new innovations in information management and storage from the very beginning and brings an unparalleled record of expertise and success with the industry's leading companies to our executive management team," said Tony Lawry, president of RICOMM Systems. "Information management and storage have been core IT disciplines at RICOMM over the last three decades, so we naturally welcome Dan as a significant expansion of our thought leadership in this market."

Cloer was responsible for the design and development of Data Packer, a product that BMC launched in 1982 and still a successful product for the company. He left BMC in 1986 to lead DBSE Software, Inc. as president and CEO. From 1995 to 2001, in several management positions at EMC, Cloer managed several initiatives that helped propel EMC to a leadership position in storage platforms and later in Network Attached Storage markets.
