PRINCETON, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 22, 2015 — Dataram Corporation [NASDAQ:DRAM] announced today that its board of directors appointed board member and Chairman David Moylan as its interim President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), replacing John Freeman.
Dataram Chairman and CEO Dave Moylan said, “Dataram has, with the support of the board and our shareholders, embarked on an aggressive financial and operational transformation of the company in order to establish a strong foundation for profitable inorganic and organic growth. As a board, our priority is now to identify a leader who can leverage our company's assets and leadership team to drive the next stage of Dataram’s evolution.”
Mr. Moylan brings extensive experience and knowledge to Dataram. He joined Dataram’s Board of Directors in November 2014 and serves as its Chairman. He was previously a Partner at, and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of, Yenni Capital, Inc., a private equity firm. Mr. Moylan was also a Managing Director with the Corporate Executive Board (“CEB”), the world’s leading member-based advisory company, from 2010 to 2012. At CEB, Mr. Moylan held several executive roles, which addressed critical business challenges that included serving as President and CEO of Toolbox.com, where he drove the successful turnaround of the business, returning it to profitability and spearheaded its successful divestiture to Ziff Davis. Previously, he held executive positions at LexisNexis and AOL, and was a consultant for IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and A.T. Kearney. A former U.S. Army officer who served with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Mr. Moylan holds an MSIA (MBA) from Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business.
