Renodeyn joins Ektron on the heels of significant customer growth in
Europe during 2010, with over 60 companies in the Benelux region now using
the Ektron platform for their web content management, marketing optimization
and social software needs, including The Global Fund to Fight AIDS,
Tuberculosis and Malaria (www.theglobalfund.org/en) and Eurotunnel
Group (www.eurotunnel.com).

Renodeyn has over 13 years of experience in information technology, with
a focus on technical and sales activities, product management, presales and
business development in content management solutions. Fluent in Dutch, French
and English, Renodeyn will be working with Ektron customers and partners in
the Benelux region and France.

"We chose Ektron because it is flexible and easy to use for content
authors, fully compatible with our Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
objectives, and has very powerful features, such as the
taxonomy-categorization feature," said Jean Brunier, IT director at
Eurotunnel Group. "Ektron is compatible with our .NET IT standards, which
allows us to run our three main websites on one platform. Since we
implemented Ektron, it has been very stable and fast, and upgrades have been
easy. All of these features are key for us as we sell 80 percent of our
travel tickets for cars on www.eurotunnel.com, representing around
50,000 site visits every day."

"As an Ektron Premier Partner for close to 10 years now, we have built a
strong professional relationship with Ektron and their team," said
Jean-Pierre Van Loo, managing partner at Uniway. "Having a local Ektron
presence is very valuable to us and we are convinced it will help us take our
partnership to the next level. We have implemented Ektron-based sites for
renowned Belgian companies such as Mensura and PartenaHR and we plan on doing
many more in the future."

"Last year was a banner year for Ektron in Europe. We're continuing to
see tremendous interest and demand for our solutions," said Benjamin
, managing director, Ektron Europe LTD. "Now, with the addition of
Gregory, who will be manning our new Brussels office, we look toward another
successful year in 2011. Gregory's long-term background with content
management systems and his experience with the Ektron platform makes him a
perfect match for our company."
