Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced the appointment of key executives to expand and strengthen its Global Strategic Alliances Team. Steve Seminario, currently director of Business Development at NetIQ, has been named vice president of Strategic Alliances and Jim Docherty will move from his current position at NetIQ as vice president of Sales for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region into the position of vice president of EMEA Strategic Alliances.

NetIQ’s Global Strategic Alliances Team is tasked with establishing relationships with industry leading software companies, platform providers and systems integrators to create world-class Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions for our customers worldwide. NetIQ and its global alliance partners have made significant investments, both technical and business, to ensure that our complementary technologies and services provide the greatest business benefit.

Throughout his 16 year career in the IT industry, Seminario has managed a range of product marketing and strategic alliances functions at both industry leading and start-up companies, including Hewlett-Packard, Apple Computer, NetFRAME Systems and GemStone Systems. Prior to the merger of WebTrends Corporation with NetIQ, Seminario headed up product management at WebTrends Corporation and then took charge of the business development organization.

As vice president of EMEA Strategic Alliances, Docherty will spearhead the growth of NetIQ’s strategic alliances throughout the EMEA region. Docherty has successfully led NetIQ’s EMEA operations for four years and has built strong relationships with its partners, including Microsoft, HP/Compaq and Siemens.

Seminario and Docherty will join Stephen Kangas, NetIQ's vice president of Microsoft Alliances, to form the Global Strategic Alliances Team. Kangas is responsible for managing NetIQ's alliance with Microsoft.

All three executives will report to Glenn Winokur, chief operating officer at NetIQ. Winokur said the changes are crucial to NetIQ's future. “Strategic alliances have been and continue to be a key part of NetIQ's growth strategy, as is evidenced by our strong relationships with industry leaders including Microsoft, CheckPoint, HP/Compaq and Akamai. Expanding our Strategic Alliances Team will enable NetIQ to establish more industry leading alliances for the greater benefit of our customers,” Winokur said.
