Former U.S. Pacific Commander Expands Military Expertise on AtHoc Board to Support Critical Department of Defense and Homeland Defense Operations

SAN MATEO, Ca. (May 27, 2009) – AtHoc, Inc., the pioneer and leader in network-centric emergency notification systems, today announced the appointment of Admiral Thomas B. Fargo, USN (Ret.), former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, to the company’s board of directors.

Admiral Fargo has been part of the AtHoc team since late 2007, serving as a member of the company’s strategic advisory board. With the appointment to the AtHoc board of directors, Admiral Fargo broadens his role by working with the AtHoc executive team and fellow board members to help set the company’s business strategy.

“After serving as an AtHoc advisor for nearly two years, I welcome the opportunity to extend my role and work with the AtHoc board to help align the company with the military’s evolving and expanding needs for emergency notification capabilities,” said Admiral Fargo. “As a past naval commander, I have a vested interest in helping my former colleagues prepare for critical missions and emergency operations. I look forward to serving on the AtHoc board and helping address current Department of Defense, government agency and first responder community needs while also adding value for AtHoc.”

As the former senior U.S. military commander in East Asia, the Pacific and Indian Ocean, Admiral Fargo led the largest unified command while directing the joint operations of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. He will offer valuable insight across the entire range of AtHoc’s business opportunities.

Admiral Fargo retired from the military on March 28, 2005, after a distinguished career serving the U.S. Navy and the Department of Defense. He was the 20th officer to hold the position of Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command. He was responsible to the President and the Secretary of Defense and was the U.S. military representative for collective defense arrangements in the Pacific.

“It’s an honor to welcome a leader of the caliber of Admiral Fargo to our board,” said Guy Miasnik, president and CEO of AtHoc. “Admiral Fargo’s background and expertise in defense and homeland security will further strengthen our market position and our ability to continue our significant growth momentum while assuring in-depth understanding of the requirements of this market.”
