In addition, Corero is pleased to report the successful conclusion of the executive search for an experienced Group Finance Director.

We sought to complement our existing skill set with an executive with a successful track record of leading technology companies underpinned by extensive multichannel sales experience. We believe Lionel will be an excellent addition to Corero's executive management team and the Board as we enter the next phase of the Company's evolution.

"We are equally delighted to welcome Neil Pritchard to Corero. Neil is an experienced finance director, having previously worked for London listed companies, who will also complement our existing senior team.

"I would also like to extend my gratitude on behalf of the board to Ashley for having led the organisation over the past seven years, helping to pioneer and position our cutting edge technology in the marketplace.
