Toronto, Ontario – October 30, 2014 – The board of directors of Constellation Software Inc. (“Constellation”) (TSX: CSU) announced today the resignation of Brian Aune from, and the appointment of Paul McFeeters to, the Company’s Board of Directors effective October 31, 2014.
“Brian has been involved in the shaping of Constellation from its earliest days, over 20 years ago. Few can bide their time and choose their spots as well as Brian. He’s a master of the clear, well phrased argument that summarizes an issue and dislodges intransigent debaters without offense. In the pre-IPO era of the corporation, Brian helped us walk the sometimes evasive line between serving our private equity shareholders and serving our broader constituencies. I know we won’t be as wise a board without him, but I hope we’ll make him proud of our efforts, by acting as he would.” said Constellation founder Mark Leonard.
Mr. Aune has served on the company’s board since 2000.
Mr. McFeeters recently retired from OpenText where he served as the Chief Financial Officer from June 2006. Mr. McFeeters has more than thirty years of business experience, including previous employment as Chief Financial Officer of Platform Computing Inc., a grid computing software vendor from 2003 to 2006, and of Kintana Inc., a privately-held IT governance software provider, from 2000 to 2003. Mr. McFeeters also held President and CEO positions at MD Private Trust from 1997 to 2000. Between 1981 and 1996 Mr. McFeeters worked at Municipal Financial Corporation and held various progressive positions there including CFO, COO, President and CEO. Since 2009 Mr. McFeeters has been a member of the board of Blueprint Software Systems Inc., an enterprise requirements software solutions provider. Mr. McFeeters holds a B.B.A (Honours) from Wilfrid Laurier University and a MBA from Schulich School of Business at York University and is a Chartered Professional Accountant.
