Other board members include Marcia Bateson, managing director and chief administrative officer, J.P. Morgan Partners; Steve Beitler, managing director, Trident Capital; William Franklin, managing director, Bank of America Capital Corporation; and J.

Makmann brings over 30 years of management experience in the high technology sector to Network Storage Solutions, with special expertise in storage hardware and software companies. Most recently, he served as president and chief operating officer of San Diego-based nStor Technologies, a provider of enterprise-class storage systems. Makmann will leverage the ongoing partnership with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS). Former president and CEO Bradford Clemmons will now assume the position of chief technology officer.


James E. Rohr, chairman, president and CEO of The PNC Financial Services Group, has been named incoming chairman of the board for BITS, the Technology Group for The Financial Services Roundtable.

The purpose is to establish a framework for safe, sound, private and secure financial services--whether online or in traditional settings.
