WebMethods taps U.S. sales head

Published on .

Fairfax, Va.--In a bid to rebound from its toughest quarter in recent memory, b-to-b software developer WebMethods Inc. hired Tom Aitchison as VP-sales for the Americas, a newly created position. Aitchison, formerly VP-sales at Internet services company Kinzan Inc., will oversee WebMethods' U.S., Canadian and South American sales operations and report to David Mitchell, president-COO. WebMethods, whose customers include Ford Motor Co. and Citigroup, recently announced it was cutting 160 positions, or 15% of its workforce, after posting a first-quarter loss wider than Wall Street expected.
