What’s going on at ClearForest?

I tried to invite Jay Henderson so speak on the Text Analytics Summit marketing panel, but got no answer to my e-mail. The company phone directory didn’t work so well for him either. I sent e-mail to a general PR company e-mail address, and that didn’t get returned. And Ravi tells me he has had similar difficulties reaching them.

Does anybody know what’s going on at ClearForest these days? A comparison of the current management team listing and one from last April does suggest there’s been substantial turnover in sales, marketing, and development management.

    Dang. I liked talking to you there, Jay.

    Please feel free to pitch me a briefing on what you’re doing now.

    Is it Tom or Thomas in that email address?

    Tom should definitely work. I’ve only just started here at Unica and will reach out to you as I settle into things.
