Perseus Development Corporation Opens New Offices in Toronto and Singapore as Company Continues its International Expansion
Braintree, MA (April 3, 2004) - Perseus Development Corporation, the industry leader in Windows-based and PDA-based survey software, announced today the opening of its new office in Canada. Located in Toronto, Perseus Canada, Inc. provides strategic product support and service to Canadian customers, in addition to building new business opportunities.

"The establishment of this office is a significant step toward achieving our goal of providing web survey systems and software internationally," said Carl Henning, Vice President of International Operations for Perseus. "With its innovative word-processor interface, Perseus SurveySolutions is the most convenient way to create questionnaires in English, French, and other languages."
Valarie Koziol has been appointed President of Perseus Canada. Ms. Koziol has over 20 years of IT experience. She is the founder and former President of StarLight, an IT training company specializing in high-end, multi-platform networking/infrastructure courses, as well as end-user training. She has also worked for Microsoft and IKON and has served on advisory panels for several corporations including Novell, Thomson Prometric, and trade associations including CompTIA. Joining Ms. Koziol in the new office is Jean Paul Diry, a trilingual sales executive, who is managing the sales department for Perseus Canada. With more than 20 years of experience in IT, Mr. Diry is a seasoned sales executive, specializing in software niche markets and training services.
"We have a well-qualified team in place with the right blend of experience to support our clients in Canada," said Mr. Henning.
This office is the third Perseus has opened in the last five months in response to the increasing demand for Perseus’ products and services.
