Commerce Events Appoints General Leon E. Salomon, U.S. Army, Retired to the Advisory Board

CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Commerce Events, Inc., the leading provider of radio frequency (RF) based logistics and manufacturing applications, is pleased to announce the appointment of General Leon E. Salomon to the advisory board. General Salomon was the Deputy Chief of Staff for Headquarters Department of the U.S. Army from 1992 to 1994. He began his final assignment as Commanding General, U.S. Army Materiel Command in February 1994. At that time, General Salomon became only the second Ordnance officer in U.S. Army history to earn his fourth star.

He retired from active duty in 1996 joining Rubbermaid as V.P. of Purchasing and Logisitics. He later became Senior V.P. of Procurement for Rubbermaid.

``General Salomon brings extensive private and public sector experience to Commerce Events,'' says Anand M. Das, CEO of Commerce Events. ``We are very excited to gain such valuable leadership as we grow the company to be the dominant software provider in radio frequency based enterprise applications.''

As a strong advocate for leveraging technology, General Salomon adapted business practices to the Army's research and development, acquisition, and logistics programs. While noting that technology will not replace the soldier, he insisted that technology is ``a means to give soldiers the extra edge they need and so rightfully deserve.''

``There has been a dramatic increase in the adoption of RFID based systems in the U.S. Armed Forces,'' says General Leon E. Salomon. ``Direct radio frequency enablement is a fundamental requirement in making Logistics/Supply-chain management systems more efficient. CME software stack provides native RF enablement thereby providing Government and commercial sectors improved execution responsiveness, enhanced control and greater data accuracy''
