Board of Directors
Press Releases
July 23, 1996

The Potomac KnowledgeWay Project today announced that William A. Hodges, president of NationsBank, Greater Washington, located in Washington, D.C., and Clifford M. Kendall, chairman of the board of Computer Data Systems, Inc.(CDSI), based in Rockville, MD, have joined its board of directors.

"As we continue to evolve the project, we are committed to expanding the board of directors to encompass the entire greater Washington region," said Mario Morino, chairman of the Potomac KnowledgeWay Project. "This process began with the appointments of Brit Kirwan, president of the University of Maryland at College Park, and John Tydings, president of The Greater Washington Board of Trade, in April. We are fortunate to welcome Cliff and Bill to our organization as well."

The KnowledgeWay is focusing on four primary initiatives: increasing the awareness of what the communications revolution means to individuals, institutions and businesses in the region; cultivating network driven entrepreneurship; promoting a net-savvy workforce; and advancing a regional information infrastructure that will improve and facilitate connectedness throughout the region.

"With the changes occurring in the banking industry due to the Internet and my involvementas chairman of The Greater Washington Initiative, joining the Potomac KnowledgeWay Project is a natural extension of my business and personal commitments," said Hodges, who has been with NationsBank since 1972 and is currently responsible for leading the bank's area management team in various community and business activities. "I am looking forward to making the KnowledgeWay part of the greater Washington culture." Hodges also serves as the commercial banking executive for the Mid-Atlantic Banking Group, which provides services to commercial, industrial and institutional customers in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Kendall, who recently received The Greater Washington Board of Trade's 1996 "Leader of the Year" award, has played an important role as a civic entrepreneur and catalyst for the region's technology sector for nearly three decades. Kendall recently served a three-year term as chairman of the Suburban Maryland High Technology Council and as chair of the Montgomery-Prince George's County CEO Roundtable. "It is an exciting time for our area, and I am very pleased to serve on the board of a group that I believe will help crystallize the greater Washington region's place in the global information technology community," said Kendall, who has guided CDSI to become one of the country's largest and most respected small companies, employing more than 3,000 people and generating more than $220 million in annual revenues.

Formed in June 1995, the Potomac KnowledgeWay Project has quickly emerged as a powerful and positive force in the greater Washington region. The Potomac KnowledgeWay Project serves as a catalyst to help the greater Washington region seize the economic, educational and social opportunities of the communications revolution and become the global center of the knowledge industry.
