Mindjet announced today that it has hired two new vice presidents – a VP of marketing and a VP of products. In the company’s news release, it states that it has made these hires to "prepare for web expansion."
Neil Mendelson, the new VP of products, comes to Mindjet from Business Objects, where he led development of its first software-as-a-service offerings – in other words, Web 2.0 stuff! Although the news release doesn’t explicitly state anything more about Mindjet’s strategy, other than the cryptic headline, it would appear that the company plans to launch a new web-based visual mapping tool. Very interesting!
I am scheduled to have a conference call with Mindjet CEO Scott Raskin in mid-June, which should result in more details about the company’s plans. Stay tuned to this blog for more details as they develop.
