Interland Welcomes John Crecine to Board of Directors [25th November 2003]

ATLANTA, Nov 25, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Interland (INLD) , a leading provider of Web hosting and online services for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced the election of John Patrick Crecine to its board of directors.

"Pat is a true pioneer who brings an enviable track record of successes in both technology and public policy to Interland's board of directors," said Joel Kocher, chairman and CEO of Interland. "We look forward to working with him, and know his unique mix of experience will help us as we continue to break new ground in how businesses use the power of the Internet to create online success."

Crecine currently serves as chief executive officer of B.P.T., Inc. and as chief financial officer of Islandless Network, LLC. From 1987 to 1994, he served as president of the Georgia Institute of Technology, and was the driving force behind historical milestones for the Institute, including doubling the African-American student enrollment and the selection of Georgia Tech's campus as the location for the 1996 Olympic Village and the principal venue for five Olympic competitions.

Prior to relocating to Georgia, Crecine served as senior vice president and provost at Carnegie Mellon, his alma mater, where he founded the Inter-university Consortium for Educational Computing, an association of research universities. From 1976 to 1983 he was dean of the Carnegie Mellon College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Crecine's career began at the University of Michigan where in 1968 he established the country's first program in public policy. While at Michigan he served as an economist, statistician, and consultant to the federal government, and worked as an economist with the RAND Corporation.

While serving on several government committees influencing the advancement of technology, Crecine chaired the Office of Technology Assessment's Networking and High Performance Computing Panel, which led to the National Research & Education Network Act (the "Gore Bill"), and the widespread use of the Internet by the public.

Crecine earned a bachelor's degree in industrial management, as well as a master's and doctoral degree in industrial administration from Carnegie Mellon University.
