How the Potomac KnowledgeWay Is Building on
Its Leadership Role

And to do this, the Potomac KnowledgeWay is preparing itself for a new future.

April has conveyed to you the results of a comprehensive planning effort that has afforded the Potomac KnowledgeWay a more defined focus, a clearer message and five strategic initiatives that will lead this systemic change.

As many of you know, sometime in 1998, I will step down as Chairman, but will continue to remain very much a part of the Potomac KnowledgeWay Project. My visibility with the KnowledgeWay and financial and executive support will continue.

We are announcing a set of new Directors that expands an already strong Board. The new members give us great additional leadership and is more representative of the region, key industries, and sectors. Today, we are proud to announce that the following distinguished leaders have joined the Potomac KnowledgeWay Board:

  • Art Johnson, President and COO of Lockheed Martin Corporation's Information & Services Sector
  • Alan Merten, President of George Mason University
  • Russ Ramsey, President and co-founder of Friedman, Billings, Ramsey & Co., Inc.
  • Pat Swygert, President of Howard University
  • Steve Walker, President, CEO and founder of Trusted Information Systems, Inc.
  • Mark Warner, Managing Director of Columbia Capital Corporation
And, we are not ending this leadership expansion here. You can expect to see other regional leaders joining this impressive Board; members of the Board more engaged in the Project and its strategic initiatives, such as the roles that Brit Kirwan and Bob Templin have taken as the Co-Chairs for the Special Committee to advance the IPS Research Institute; a broad engagement of our investors and partners in shaping the strategic initiatives; and our collaboration with the leadership of other groups to benefit from their expertise and involvement to successfully deliver on the five strategic initiatives.

Just as we are asking of everyone else, we too are preparing ourselves for an exciting journey.

next.... Thank You
