CallCommand Appoints Mike Martinez to COO

December 10, 2007

Cincinnati, OH — CallCommand announced the appointment of Mike Martinez, formerly CallCommand’s executive vice president of products and strategy, to the newly created position of president and chief operating officer. Martinez will be responsible for day-to-day operations and the focused execution of CallCommand’s 2008 business plan. He will report directly to Al Babbington, CallCommand’s CEO, and will be based out of CallCommand’s Irvine, Calif. offices.

CallCommand has experienced tremendous growth over the past five years and currently enjoys greater than 12 percent market penetration in its core automotive vertical, according to the company. In order to continue its aggressive growth strategy and actively engage the business community and external markets to prepare for several new technology releases in 2008, the company created the new position of COO and president.

“Mike has had a tremendous impact on CallCommand since his arrival,” says CallCommand’s CEO Al Babbington. “The entire product team has done sterling work this year in expanding our technical capabilities and building our company a new, consolidated operating platform, and I’m excited to have him step up to this new level of responsibility.”

Martinez has been with CallCommand for just over one year. Prior to CallCommand, Martinez co-founded and served as president and CEO of Four Creeks, a broadcast voice messaging system which was acquired by CallCommand late last year. Prior to that Martinez held the position of vice president of sales, marketing and products at The Cobalt Group for four years. He also served for five years at Lucent Technologies as general manager of marketing, and for seven years in a variety of roles at Microsoft.

“It’s been a great experience working with such a dynamic and growing company over the past year,” Martinez says. “CallCommand is on the cusp of some very exciting opportunities, and I am thrilled to step up and take this position to help ensure its success.”
