Changing the Way We Do Business

$50 Million Launch of Financial Social Network Meettheboss.com Will Change the way we do Business

NEW YORK, September 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The financial services community is facing bad news. Its institutions are creaking, its belief is crumbling, and regulation is getting tighter. Finally, there is a silver lining.

A new website is being launched for the financial services community, and it stands to change the way executives communicate, forever.

MeettheBoss.com membership reads like an industry who's who. This dream rolodex features CIOs, CEOs and other senior executives from ABN Amro, Barclays, HBOS, Goldman Sachs, Visa and many, many more.

All of them, just two clicks away.

Weekly interviews with industry leaders are webcast on the site's dedicated channel. These are combined with live, moderated discussion groups, video conferencing, IM and secure e-mail in one easy-to-use app.

MeettheBoss.com is the only financial services networking tool to combine quick and secure communication between members from one, simple interface: their profile page.

There is no cost to joining and membership is by application only. MeettheBoss.com is strictly for financial services executives to ensure a truly secure, open environment where they can learn from each other.

This communication is more important than ever, and something the industry must embrace. Austin Adams, former CIO for JPMorgan Chase, says of MeettheBoss.com: "Every one of us as CIOs can be much more effective as individuals and as leaders if we take what I call a progressive / aggressive stance to dialogue with other CIOs."

Spencer Green, Founder of MeettheBoss.com, says, "We are really excited by the take-up on membership, which we will close at 50,000. We currently have 20,000 members through invitation only; the next 30,000 will be through application.

"Every single week there will be video interviews with the top thought- and industry leaders, including Martin Davis, CIO for Wachovia and Peter Leukert, CIO at Commerzbank.

"We are seeing that this platform is exactly what the industry has been crying out for. The feedback has been incredible. We must learn from our mistakes and not put our heads in the sand."

The future for financial services - in networking terms at least - is looking very bright indeed.
