George Ziemba, a key early member of Verisign Inc.'s management team, has moved to ICVerify Inc. as vice president of sales.
ICVerify, provider of widely used software for authorizing point of sale transactions, is aggressively moving into the Internet commerce market and seeking the skills brought by Mr. Ziemba.
"His charter will be to strengthen and expand our leadership positions with financial institutions, software developers, systems integrators, Internet service providers, and Web hosting services," said ICVerify president and chief executive officer F. Thomas Aden.
Mr. Ziemba had been vice president of sales and business development at Verisign, the digital certification company in Mountain View, Calif., that was spun out two years ago from RSA Data Security Inc.
Before Verisign, Mr. Ziemba was vice president of sales and support at Tandem Computers Inc.'s Atalla division, a leader in transaction security systems.
