Date:1/13/2009

NEW YORK, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Stream57, the leading provider of fully customizable webcasting and streaming media communications, is proud to announce that pharmaceutical industry veteran Ruth Desmond has joined the company as Vice President, Healthcare, bringing nearly three decades of experience, knowledge and success to the virtual communications software company. Dr. Desmond assumed the role at the beginning of the new year.

"Stream57 is at the front of the pack and the gap is widening," Desmond said. "I started working with Stream57 several years ago from the other side of the table. I challenged them with new initiatives and aggressive timelines, and found them to be the most customer-centric and flexible vendor that I have worked with in my 27 years in the industry. They always delight clients and customers with their work, and I'm extremely grateful to be a part of such a talented team."

Dr. Desmond began her career in R&D for Eli Lilly and Company and Merck & Co., Inc., but soon took positions in strategic product planning and marketing, most recently serving as Executive Director, Global e-Marketing for Merck. Having worked with Stream57's StreamLine webcasting and media delivery platform for a variety of products and divisions, Dr. Desmond is very familiar with the advantages of using emerging technology in the pharmaceutical and medical marketing business.

"The fact that Stream57 offers project management as well as an amazing development team is key to making projects move efficiently and execute flawlessly," she continued. "If there is a need for physicians or patients, Stream57 can make it happen."

"We are thrilled to add Ruth to our team," Stream57 President Ben Chodor said. "I have the utmost respect for Dr. Desmond - her consistent industry-leading success, impeccable character and unmatched ability to foresee trends and opportunities - we couldn't design a more ideal candidate to lead our healthcare initiatives. Ruth's endorsement by way of embracing and promoting our technology was the most flattering and humbling praise to receive; we couldn't be more excited about where her influence and reputation will take us now."

Dr. Desmond joins Stream57 as the company comes off a banner year. In 2008, Stream57 nearly doubled in size, executed first-time projects for several new industries such as publishing and consumer product marketing, and received multiple awards and accolades including a prize at the Medical Marketing & Media Awards.

"One of my favorite quotes is from the great philosopher, Wayne Gretzky. I think he also played a little hockey," Desmond joked. "He said, 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it is.' Right now, the puck is blazing toward multi-channel marketing and nobody does it better than Stream57."
