Monsoon Commerce Attracts Top Talent, Appoints Three New Executives

Additions Key to Driving Accelerated Growth on Multiple Fronts

EMERYVILLE, CA—November 15, 2011 — Monsoon Commerce, Inc., a preferred provider of online marketplace and e-commerce solutions for merchants, announced today the appointment of three new company officers. Peter Bohnert was named vice president of technology; Casey Carey was appointed vice president of marketing; and John Seaner is the vice president of Stone Edge Technologies.

Coming on the heels of announcing a new SaaS-based product for sellers across multiple marketplaces, Seller Connect, and the reveal of a new corporate brand identity, Monsoon Commerce momentum continues with key additions to a talented executive team tasked with driving strategic growth initiatives on multiple fronts.

Peter Bohnert brings over 25 years of experience in the software industry, including work in the ERP, e-commerce, and software configuration markets at companies such as Inktomi, Marcam Solutions and LEGENT. He is deeply skilled in building and leading agile, customer-focused teams in the design and implementation of high-quality software products. Bohnert will lead the Monsoon Commerce product development efforts, including a continued shift to new cloud-based, SaaS offerings.

Casey Carey joins Monsoon Commerce fresh off a product portfolio and brand remake at Webtrends, where he was the VP of products and lead corporate strategy and product marketing. Prior to Webtrends, Carey held senior marketing positions at several consumer data and marketing technology companies including Epsilon, DoubleClick, MatchLogic, and ROI Direct. He is recognized as a thought-leader in digital analytics and B2B marketing and will be responsible for driving all aspects of marketing with significantly increasing awareness and demand for Monsoon Commerce products as the primary strategic focus.

John Seaner is a seasoned leader and innovator with extensive experience in sales, marketing, business development, and operations for several leading supply chain solutions providers. He has held executive positions with Maxxing, GS1, QRS (now GXS), and Prophet 21 (now Epicor). Seaner will oversee operations and set the strategic direction for the product portfolio acquired with Stone Edge Technologies in April, 2011.

"This is an exciting time for our company and the e-commerce industry as a whole," said Brian Elliott, CEO of Monsoon Commerce. "We have experienced significant growth over the last year, alongside a rapid evolution in the e-commerce market. This is the perfect time to bring in fresh talent and deeply experienced leaders to help us elevate our brand and drive strategic growth of the company. Peter, Casey, and John are uniquely skilled leaders and visionaries, and I am thrilled have them as key contributors to the Monsoon Commerce vision."
