Similarity Systems appoints new global head of sales & marketing

Dublin, Ireland November 30, 2005: Similarity Systems, the leading provider of business-focused data quality solutions, has appointed Aidan Gallagher as executive vice president of sales and marketing. Aidan is a non executive director of a number of international IT companies and was formerly executive vice president, global business development at Baltimore Technologies.

In his new role Aidan heads Similarity Systems’ worldwide business development and marketing efforts. He and his team are responsible for sales strategy and execution, and for directing the company’s marketing initiatives across all geographies.

“It’s great to be able to attract an executive of Aidan’s experience and expertise to Similarity Systems,” said Garry Moroney, chief executive officer, Similarity Systems. “Aidan will bring his considerable experience to bear as we expand our customer base across the North America, EMEA and Asia-Pacific.”
